Grant for the Web will spark a healthier internet built on open standards, giving people more independence and control over how they distribute and monetize content, and generating better business models for the web.
Working monetization natively into the web using open protocols and standards benefits both content creators and their supporters by providing access, choice, and user control.
We envision a world where it’s possible for creators and publishers to get paid for their work without relying on invasive ads, paywalls, and the abuse of personal data.
Grant for the Web is founded on the belief that a healthy internet needs openness and opportunity, and that it cannot be built on the backs of individuals’ security and privacy.
These funds will seed an ecosystem that will challenge the web’s most urgent issues: loss of privacy, centralization of power, and inequalities in online participation.
