The Libra Foundation is a private foundation established by Elizabeth B. Noyce which became active in 1989. The Foundation was created with the belief that all people are born with equal and inalienable rights and fundamental freedoms and have a right to live in a healthy environment and in peaceful, just and equitable societies. To this end, the Foundation financially supports the human rights movement and is also interested in supporting innovative and effective strategies for interconnections between programs and organisations in order to lead to real social change.
The Libra Foundation funds social and economic justice organisations that integrate human rights into their work in and across the following priority areas: (1) women’s rights, with an emphasis on reproductive rights and the elevation of women’s rights as human rights; (2) environmental justice, with a focus on human rights, promoting social justice, and mitigating the impacts of climate change; (3) government accountability, specifically addressing detention standards, secret criminal proceedings and illegal monitoring, and the concentration of executive branch authority; (4) human rights field, building to support the development of a global human rights movement.
The Foundation supports organisations that promote fundamental freedoms and human rights in the United States and around the world.
Grant funding is provided to initiatives worldwide.
The Foundation awards grants ranging from $30,000 to $200,000.
