Interested in supporting our work? Make a donation.
We receive a mix of unrestricted funding through donations and grants, and project-specific funding through contracts and grants. We are incredibly grateful to all of our donors, funders, and partners. Here we list all sources of funding greater than $1000 in either category (for individual donors an asterisk indicates that we received a matching donation from their company). We have also benefited from sponsored compute credits from Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. Funding for additional, ongoing projects will be listed in the future. Read more in our Annual Reports (2020, 2021, 2022) or our Form 990s (2020, 2021, 2022).
