To deliver digital equality, we aim to change government and business policies for the better. We believe that everyone has the right to access the internet and use it freely and fully — and these principles underpin all our work. In recent years, we have influenced policies in over a dozen countries, helping to unlock the benefits of the web for hundreds of millions of people.
Our tight-knit team of around 30 works from hubs in Washington DC, Cape Town, Jakarta and London. We celebrate diversity — more than a dozen nationalities are represented at the Web Foundation, and half of our senior managers are women.
Our founder gave the web to the world for free, but fighting for its future comes at a cost. Unlike most other foundations, we’re unendowed and so we rely on donations to continue our valuable work. If you’re inspired by what you read on this site, please consider supporting us.
