Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust
DescriptionThe Trust, founded by a Quaker entrepreneur, supports people who address the root causes of conflict and injustice. The Trust engages in philanthropy that challenges the existing power imbalances in society to effect real change. Grants in its Rights and Justice Grant Program are awarded for the protection and promotion of human rights and their enforcement in the United Kingdom. Grants are awarded for: policy advocacy and campaigning to protect and promote human rights for the most vulnerable; holding government and public bodies accountable for the implementation of human rights commitments; work to build public support for human rights, particularly amongst more skeptical audiences and in communities disconnected from political power and influence; new voices in the human rights sphere and work to create connections between human rights and social justice issues; and promoting rights and justice for minorities who face the most severe forms of racism. The Trust welcomes applications from civil society organizations that tackle injustices faced by racial and religious communities, in particular Muslim communities, Roma, Gypsies and Travellers, as well as broader anti-racist work. The Trust focuses on work at both a national and European level although work at a European level is limited and must have direct relevance to communities living in the United Kingdom.
