The Human Rights Measurement Initiative is a non-profit global research collaboration, entirely funded by grants and donations. You can see some of our past and current donors here.

Our measures of human rights performance will always be available free of charge and openly licensed.

Since we are committed to producing measures that are independent, we only accept funding from ethical bodies that remain at arm’s length from our operations. This means we rely on grants and donations to collaboratively produce high-quality independent data. If you’d like to provide support, please contact us or donate now.

If you are resident in New Zealand you can make a tax-deductible donation to us via our host institute Motu Public Policy and Economic Research.

If you are in the United States you can make a tax-deductible donation through The Gift Trust or via our host institute GLOBIS, at the University of Georgia.

Note that our host institute Motu Economic and Public Policy Research has been certified as equivalent to a US public charity. Documentation can be obtained from NGOsource.

Rest of the world: please use either of those links, or contact us.

We now have a Patreon page, which is intended for ordinary people, including friends and family members who want to support what we do, in a steady ongoing way, from as little as $5 a month. It’s a long-term background funding initiative, which we hope will add up to some useful financial injection to support our operations. Our Patreon page is here:
