Other ways to give

Looking to go beyond a one-time donation? Discover how you can do even more to support human rights activists through a recurring donation, a gift of stock, or a company match.

Give Monthly

Recurring donations provide a reliable source of revenue for the Fund and maximum convenience for you. Your selected amount will automatically be charged monthly to your credit or debit card, and you can cancel at any time.

Get Your Gift Matched by Your Employer

Many companies match charitable donations made by employees. If so, you can have double or triple the impact for courageous activists.

Curious if your employer matches gifts? Contact your Human Resources department.

Make a Planned Gift

You can support human rights activists through a gift in your will or other estate plans, such as IRA contributions or charitable gift annuities. These legacy gifts help Fund grantees worldwide secure justice and equality while conferring tax benefits to you and your family. To learn more, please contact Rona Peligal, vice president for development and communications, at rpeligal@globalhumanrights.org.

Including the Fund can be as simple as adding this language to your will. (We recommend that you consult a legal professional when making a bequest or any estate plans.)

Bequest language:
“I give and bequeath to the Fund for Global Human Rights _________% of my total estate (or $___________).”

Host the Fund at Your Company or Home

Bring the Fund’s work to your community by hosting a staff member or Fund grantee at your organization or even your home. These gatherings can be energizing ways for you and your friends to get an in-depth look at our critical work—and how they can support bold activists and solutions. Contact Rona Peligal, vice president of development and communications, at events@globalhumanrights.org to learn more.

Donate Stock

Transferring appreciated stock to the Fund may grant you significant tax benefits. Please connect your financial advisor with Kelsie Hoppes, development associate, at +1-202-380-1858 or donations@globalhumanrights.org. The broker should have your name, complete address, the name and number of securities you would like to transfer, and the approximate dollar value of the gift.

Donor Advised Grants and Donor Advised Funds

The Fund can channel grants over $10,000 directly to our grantees or allied groups through Donor Advised Grants. We are also able to facilitate Donor Advised Funds – philanthropic portfolios that fulfill a donor’s programmatic goals. To learn more about this service, please contact Rona Peligal at rpeligal@globalhumanrights.org.
