European Human Rights Funders Network


Ariadne is a network of funders that provides a useful and supportive community for donors of all sorts, from individual philanthropists to professionally staffed trusts and foundations.

It aims to enable European funders to connect with other like minded donors, to share and transfer knowledge, to deepen grant-making skills and to build relationships for effective cooperation and collaboration.

Ariadne seeks to increase the impact of philanthropic funding by growing the knowledge and understanding of broad human rights issues amongst funders, and to encourage others to invest in this field by enabling them to be part of an active and innovative community.
