In the local policy (or GPO) of the computer, enable Success audits via one of the following:

1. Computer Configuration | Policies | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Audit Policy | Audit Object Access

2. Computer Configuration | Policies | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Advanced Audit Policy Configuration | Audit Policies | Object Access | Audit File System

Enable auditing on your directory by right-clicking on the directory in Windows Explorer and selecting Properties/Security/Advanced/Auditing/Edit/Add/Next.
Enter Everyone as the security principal to audit.
Check the "Successful" box for "Change permissions".

In the Security event log keep eye on event 4663 or 4670
