Terms & Conditions
Freedom House welcomes donations from businesses, organizations, foundations and individuals. Funding from diverse sources enables Freedom House to pursue its mission and maintain its independence. Our independence is central to our ability to operate around the world, and as such, Freedom House will not accept gifts that:
- Impair our ability to operate independently or to speak out forcefully for freedom and democracy in the U.S. and abroad;
- Undermine the independence of our research, analysis, or programming; and,
- Endanger our reputation, as determined by a stringent due diligence process performed prior to accepting any gift, including review by our Prospect Strategy Committee, as needed.
Freedom House may refuse donations that may limit our ability to carry out our work or that are made by entities whose activities might be in conflict with Freedom House’s mission. All gifts undergo a stringent due diligence process prior to acceptance. Acceptance of donations does not constitute or imply any endorsement of the donor’s policies, practices, actions, or record, and donors are to expect clear and direct criticism by Freedom House in future work, as applicable.
