What We Do


It’s increasingly difficult to predict the ways that rapid digital advances will affect different corners of society, and we’re committed to supporting the work of organizations who are exploratory and creative in the process of developing solutions. We make grants and provide in-kind service primarily to non-profit organizations in the United States.


When we see good work, we want to make sure others do, too. We’re especially committed to organizations that bring well-researched perspectives to problems faced across all of society, and a large amount of our work involves sharing news and promoting the work of grantees across our portfolio.


We think everyone has something to gain from looking beyond the borders of their own work. That’s why we seek to cultivate relationships and connections between partners and grantees across traditional boundaries and silos, and start conversations that stand to change the way we all think about and approach problems that we face.

Our Process

Our grantmaking process is designed to absorb some of the more time-consuming elements of the traditional fundraising cycle in order to help our grantees dedicate more time to fulfilling their missions. Because this approach may differ from that of some of our peers, we aim for total transparency about each of the four stages of our process, and what we hope to learn along the way. We’re unable to accept unsolicited proposals for funding at this time.
