Become a Monthly Donor

Support human rights every day of the year

When you make a monthly contribution to Amnesty International, you provide stable funding for year-round campaigning and allow Amnesty to respond quickly to situations of grave human rights violations.

To join, you simply pre-authorize a monthly deduction from your bank account or credit card.

This is the easiest and most cost-effective way for you to support Amnesty International’s life-saving human rights work.

  • as a monthly supporter, your contribution to defending human rights around the world is convenient, automatic and effective.
  • you enable Amnesty to better plan activities in advance Amnesty’s administrative costs are greatly reduced, which means more funds go directly to research, programs and campaigns
  • you will no longer receive reminders from Amnesty, which reduces paper consumption It is easy to activate and more convenient than writing cheques
  • you can spread your donation out over the year, so that you hardly notice the regular deductions

We cherish our Amnesty International monthly donors! 

Amnesty International monthly donors receive a special newsletter, Rights!Now, published two times a year. It highlights worldwide campaigns, major research reports and missions, and progress made around the world in human rights.

We also make sure to tell you about individual cases, where the timely intervention of Amnesty members has led to someone’s release from prison or protection against grave injustices. Monthly donors also receive the Amnesty International Annual Report and special mailings which help you share Amnesty’s message with friends and loved ones.

Once you start your monthly gifts, withdrawals continue each month until you notify Amnesty of a change.

A single tax receipt for your annual contributions will be sent to you early in the new year.
