What funders have to say about How To Fund Tech


"The How To Fund Tech field guide is a thoughtful and energising guide for matching organisational values with technology and data opportunities. Any funder – technology-minded or not – will benefit from this clear, intentional, and multifaceted approach."


– Elizabeth Eagen, Information Program, Open Society Foundations

"Technology can no longer be viewed as a specialised field in the funding landscape. It impacts all of our lives and work, for better or worse. This guide helps take the fear out of approaching technology in grantmaking and serves as an excellent resource to support organisations to understand the role of data and technology in their work."

– Hanan Elmasu, International Human Rights Programme Oak Foundation

"The complexities of technology continue to confound even the most thoughtful and strategic funders. This is an excellent primer on how to be smarter and feel more confident in integrating tech into your funding strategy."


– Michael Brennan, Internet Freedom Program, Ford Foundation
