The Legacies for Justice Society

The Legacies for Justice Society recognizes and thanks supporters who have made estate plans or established life-income gifts to benefit Human Rights Watch. Membership in the Legacies for Justice Society is bestowed without regard to gift level, as each commitment represents a lifetime pledge to Human Rights Watch that expresses both the desire for a world that is just and the future of what is possible through philanthropy.

How Will You Leave Your Legacy?

Every year, Human Rights Watch benefits from the foresight of a core group of committed donors who make a forward-looking investment in the pursuit of justice and promotion of human rights through a legacy gift to Human Rights Watch.

A legacy gift-a gift made as part of one's overall financial and/or estate planning-is an enduring mark of generosity, and ensures that together we will continue to improve the lives of people around the globe for decades and generations to come.

Our legacy supporters are recognized in perpetuity as members of the Legacies for Justice Society. We invite you to join us. Please consider a confidential, no-obligation conversation to start this journey with us.
