Finances and Pay

Who finances Amnesty International's work?

The overwhelming majority of our income comes from individuals the world over.

These personal and unaffiliated donations allow Amnesty International (AI) to maintain full independence from any and all governments, political ideologies, economic interests or religions.

We neither seek nor accept any funds for human rights research from governments or political parties and we accept support only from businesses that have been carefully vetted.

By way of ethical fundraising leading to donations from individuals, we are able to stand firm and unwavering in our defence of universal and indivisible human rights.

The global Amnesty movement is made up of a network of national sections and the International Secretariat.
