Extraordinary Gifts

    Extraordinary gifts provide us with the means to transform the promise of universal human rights into reality. Your generous gift will be used to create meaningful change and long-lasting human rights impact in Canada and around the world. These gifts have helped us start new projects, expand our research capabilities, invest in new technologies and strengthen our grassroots. When you fund our work you stand with us at rallies, join us in meetings, and beside us as we amplify the voices of marginalized individuals and communities experiencing human rights violations. 
    In order to remain independent from political ideology or economic interest, Amnesty International does not accept funding for our human rights research and campaign work from any government. That's why individual support of our work is so vital. It is because of people like you that we can continue to campaign for positive human rights change. 
    For more on our International Projects visit For a list of funding opportunities, please see our projects below:
    There is a lack of transparency and accountability of corporate networks, supply chains and global trade when it comes to illicit activity and serious human rights abuses.
    We are working for greater accountability in global networks and supply chains. Without laws being in place, companies will not carry due diligence in their supply chains nor will they be sufficiently transparent about their policies and practices.

    The project aims to secure emblematic investigations and/or prosecutions of multinational companies for corporate crimes, and to increase the willingness of investigators and prosecutors to pursue corporate crimes by companies operating in multiple jurisdictions.
    We will work to build a strong solidarity movement and action network across the continent to hold governments in the region to account. Amnesty will be able to reinforce the work of national human rights organizations, since we are less vulnerable to threats and de-legitimization by government.
    We are currently in the midst of an unprecedented refugee and internally displaced person (IDP) crisis. The number of people forced to flee their homes across the world has reached nearly 60 million for the first time since the Second World War with 4.8 million refugees just from the Syrian conflict alone.
    Disappearances and torture are generalized in Mexico, yet there is no clear consistent data on the scale of the problem. The Mexican government acknowledges more than 27,000 missing people, without specifying potential cases of enforced disappearances.
    We believe in a world where people of all genders have their rights respected, protected, and upheld. Our movement will continue to use our expertise to advocate justice, freedom, and equality for all people.
