Craig Newmark Philanthropies supports public charities 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. 
  • 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. 
  • 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.
