Each year, Open Technology Fund receives hundreds of inquiries every year, both for direct support and for referrals to other funding resources that may be available. The number of funders and service providers supporting Internet Freedom is growing but it can be difficult for individuals or projects to find information about funding or support opportunities.

OTF has compiled this incomplete list of alternate funding sources and services that support related and/or similar efforts. Sources are organized into non-exclusive subject areas in order to better guide your project to the appropriate sources. Please let us know other entries that should be included.

This list is shared for information purposes only. OTF cannot assist with fundraising efforts of individual projects or refer projects to specific funders. Inclusion of a funding entity on this list does not represent an endorsement by OTF or Radio Free Asia.

You can stay up to date on all OTF submission deadlines and open submissions windows for other potential funders by joining the OTF-announce mailing list. To join, please send a message via this page with subscribe in the subject line.
