Sources of Funding for Public Knowledge
Public Knowledge receives financial support for its mission from a wide array of sources, which ensures that its funding remains diversified and its mission independent. Funding sources include charitable foundation grants and general support contributions from generous individuals and companies, including funds raised through Public Knowledge’s annual IP3 Awards event.
Foundation support accounts for between half and two thirds of Public Knowledge’s budget, and grantors include the Ford Foundation, Open Society Foundations, The Omidyar Network, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Tides Foundation, the Kahle-Austin Foundation, the Media Democracy Fund/New Venture Fund, the Nielsen Foundation, the Knight Foundation, Voqal, the Democracy Fund, and the Economic Security Project.
The remainder of support comes from companies and individuals through donations or sponsorship of the IP3 Awards. Public Knowledge recognizes individual donors and companies if they wish through the IP3 Awards event materials. Public Knowledge limits contributions from any single corporation to 10 percent of its annual budget to ensure that no funders can attempt to assert undue influence on Public Knowledge.
