Ways grantors and foundations can support us
We hope that grantors and foundations take the time to address the mounting difficulties internet users now face when they assert their free-speech rights and their rights to access public information. Moreover, we hope that any foundation that considers making a grant to New Media Rights will share our goal of eliminating censorship of independent media creators while promoting an open, competitive, and free internet.
If you are an individual or foundation interested in getting actual results, and helping hundreds of artists, developers, journalists, bloggers, and other creators when they need it most, please contact our Executive Director Art Neill at 619-591-8870 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
