About this grant

The project goal is to empower a diverse and resilient ecosystem of civil society organizations that have the capacity and the resources to 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, a pooled fund within the Network of European Foundations will engage private funders and provide more than $4 million in grant support to digital rights and issue-specific nonprofits. During the previous grant period,13 foundations contributed to the fund, which in turn supported 24 organizations with approximately $2.4 million in grants. The Network of European Foundations is based in Brussels, Belgium.
