About the Foundation

The Galloway Foundation (GFF) was founded primarily to encourage the advancement of human rights in the United States and around the world. It is the mission of GFF to advance these goals in the most effective manner possible, taking into account its limited resources and the efforts of other foundations and non-profit organizations in the field.

At the current time, and for the foreseeable future, the GFF believes that one of the most pressing areas in need of additional resources is the investigation and reporting, in both print and broadcast media, of human rights abuses in the world.
