Our finances

We are politically and financially independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.
 
Our governance, programmes and policies are non-partisan. They are independent of specific governments, political parties and the business sector. 

To ensure our independence, we do not seek or accept money from governments or political parties for our work in documenting and campaigning against human rights abuses, only for our human rights education work. In no way do any monies received influence or affect our ability to campaign.

The vast majority of our funding comes from the contributions of individuals through our membership and our fundraising activities.

To safeguard our independence, all contributions are subject to guidelines laid down by Amnesty’s International Council.

Where your money goes

Where your money goes chart

In donating and raising funds for Amnesty International UK, you are acting in defence of human rights. Every £1 you give to Amnesty International UK allows us to protect our human rights, here in the UK and around the world. In 2016:

73p was spent directly on our work defending human rights

Investigating and exposing abuses, campaigning to protect human rights, mobilising people to take action in defence of human rights, and educating people and communities about their rights and how to claim them – this is the work that your donation enables, helping to transform societies and create a safe, more just world in which everyone’s human rights are respected.

27p was used to raise funds for human rights and to meet essential running costs

Fundraising is crucial to ensure Amnesty International UK can fulfil our purpose of protecting our human rights and protecting individuals whose rights are being abused - wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied. When you donate to Amnesty International UK, you are acting in defence of human rights.

Our Supporter Promise

Without the generosity of our supporters, important human rights work could not happen. We value and respect our supporters as partners in the defence of human rights.
