Thank You, W3C Funders

W3C is deeply grateful to the organizations listed below for their current financial support. These grants, external contracts, and other funding outside Member dues support a variety of work at W3C, including Member-approved Activities (including Working Groups), W3C public communications, and W3C internal operations. They also help connect W3C to important communities and developments in emerging technologies and research.

W3C is the leading standards body for Web technology thanks to the support it receives from funders, W3C Members, the W3C Fellows Program, and contributions through Sponsorship and Donations.

W3C follows best practices relating to external funding at W3C that ensure transparency on the nature of activities funded outside of Member fees.
