About this grant

The project goal is to build a strong, informed and united civil society that can take part in policy debates on artificial intelligence and related digital technologies. Through this engagement, civil society actors will aim to enhance the benefits and minimize the risks of the digital transformation of society. To this end, civil society and digital rights funders will create a pooled fund within the Network of European Foundations. The fund will support the core capacity of digital rights nonprofits, outreach to key issue-specific nonprofits and their networks and specific collaboration and networking opportunities across the sector. During the grant period, the fund aims to make grants totaling more than $5.8 million. The Network of European Foundations is based in Brussels, Belgium.
