HURIDOCS is able to help human rights defenders mobilise information, thanks to the generous contributions of our supporters. We receive funding from a mix of sources:
- Grants from philanthropic foundations, diplomatic and development agencies, and private companies
- Payments from human rights partner organisations for services that we provide
- Individual donations
HURIDOCS is the beneficiary of two main types of institutional grants: ones that support our general operations, and ones that support specific projects. Our current funders are:
Open Society Foundations has been supporting HURIDOCS since 2009 and currently provides general support for our organisational development.
Oak Foundation has been supporting HURIDOCS since 2011 and currently provides general support for our organisational development.
Google currently provides general support for our research on machine learning and natural language processing for HURIDOCS’ Uwazi software.
The Permanent Mission of Denmark to the UN in Geneva is currently funding our work to co-create the future of digital investigations with human rights defenders.
The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) currently funds the development of the second generation of our Uwazi software to document violations and create insights by connecting data.

The Principality of Liechtenstein’s Office for Foreign Affairs provides general operating support.
Pacific Community (SPC) currently funds the development of an open-source information and complaints management system for the Fiji Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission.
We would like to express our gratitude to all funders past and present for recognising the importance of not only preserving human rights information, but making it accessible and actionable.

Part of HURIDOCS’ strategy is to partner with human rights groups and create solutions for their specific documentation and information management needs. We often receive payment to cover these services, which then fund our operations and activities.
To all of our partners who have given us the gift of trust and support, thank you!
People from all walks of life have given to HURIDOCS, and we are deeply appreciative of their support. These individual donations fund our continued operations and activities.
