About Craig Newmark Philanthropies

I’m an old-school nerd, doing what I can to respect and support the people who fight to protect America and the values it was founded on: fairness, opportunity, and respect. I identify with the people who rarely get a break, which is why I founded Craig Newmark Philanthropies in 2015.
