The Advancing Human Rights research tracks the evolving state of human rights philanthropy by collecting and analyzing grants data. It answers critical questions about the funding landscape — Where is the money going? What are the gaps? Who is funding what? — to help funders and advocates make more informed and effective decisions. It is also a critical tool in grantmakers’ efforts to be more transparent and accountable. HRFN and Candid lead the research, in partnership with Ariadne and Prospera.
