Gifts from Donor Advised Funds are Easy

Recommend a Grant Now

You can now initiate a grant recommendation from your donor advised fund – or DAF – using the “DAF Direct” widget right on this web page if your account is with Fidelity, Schwab, BNY Mellon, or the Kansas City Community Foundation. Simply select your fund provider from the drop down at the left and the system will prompt you through the process.

Designate Remaining Funds After Your Lifetime

To continue your support after your lifetime, you can name Human Rights Watch as a beneficiary/successor of your account. Or you can designate that Human Rights Watch receives just a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your heirs.

If you have any questions about donating through the DAF Direct widget, or questions about giving through your Donor Advised Fund, please contact Brian Peterson at
