Thanks for your interest in craig newmark philanthropies!
craig newmark philanthropies supports public charities in good standing described under Sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1) or (2) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, that further our priorities of trustworthy journalism, voter protection, women in technology, veterans and military families. Specifically:
- Our trustworthy journalism and information ecosystem priority focuses on efforts that promote an honest press and counter disinformation. We rarely fund specific, often local, journalism outlets and efforts.
- Our voter protection priority focuses on defending the Fifteenth Amendment. This work includes voter registration, legislation and policy, and improvements to the electoral system.
- Our women in technology priority focuses on national initiatives that are working to solve the gender gap in technology. We do not fund tech startups or individuals who are seeking assistance with their tech educations and/or careers.
- Our vets and military families priority focuses on efforts that help vets and their families from a broad, national perspective. We typically fund local efforts indirectly, via the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
