Human Rights Watch
From HRW's website
- Human Rights Watch is dedicated to protecting the human rights of people around the world.
- We stand with victims and activists to prevent discrimination, to uphold political freedom, to protect people from inhumane conduct in wartime, and to bring offenders to justice.
- We investigate and expose human rights violations and hold abusers accountable.
- We challenge governments and those who hold power to end abusive practices and respect international human rights law.
- We enlist the public and the international community to support the cause of human rights for all.
- Human Rights Watch is an independent, nongovernmental organization, supported by contributions from private individuals and foundations worldwide. It accepts no government funds, directly or indirectly.
"The Free Expression Project of Human Rights Watch (formerly the Fund for Free Expression) emphasizes the connection between freedom of expression and global social problems by showing the effect that censorship and information policies have on the treatment of issues such as AIDS, famine, governmental corruption and environmental degradation." 
On January 1, 2005 they obtained a five-year, $15 million challenge grant from the Sandler Family Supporting Foundation. "The Sandlers and their children will donate $3 million a year for five years through the Sandler Family Supporting Foundation as long as Human Rights Watch raises $6 million annually in matching funds from first-time donors or existing donors who increase their contributions."  Rather than responding purely to the requirements of victims of violations, Human Rights Watch excepts donations targeted at research on particular projects or countries.
