We use original research, advocacy and public action to shape the policies and products we need for the web we want. Over the past decade we’ve fought successfully to expand internet access, defend net neutrality, protect online privacy, open up public data, and champion local innovation. We’ve helped make internet access more affordable for over 600 million people in low and middle-income countries and secured unprecedented commitments from the world’s biggest tech companies to tackle the abuse of women on their platforms.
Our tight-knit team of around 30 works around the world, including from hubs in Washington DC 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. We rely on donations to continue our valuable work. If you’re inspired by our mission, please consider supporting us.
