Issue Focus

Population Focus

Population Focus includes funding explicitly targeted to benefit specific groups and only illustrates those accounting for the largest shares of grant dollars or grants. See Methodology for details on how regional focus and population focus were determined and limitations.

Strategy Focus

Figures represent only grants that could be identified as supporting a specific strategy. In addition, grants may employ multiple strategies and would therefore be counted in more than one category.

Sample Grants

  • The Sigrid Rausing Trust gave multi-year core support to the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights in Poland.
  • Mary's Pence supported an anonymous individual in the United States to fund their transportation to speak at a conference in Croatia about social justice education.
