FoR has received a $150,000 Exit Grant from the Open Philanthropy Project, for general support. FoR has enjoyed a good working relationship with the Open Philanthropy Project, who are adjusting their folio and have “devoted less attention to directly funding science policy and infrastructure work than anticipated, and do not feel that we are in a position to properly evaluate FoR’s work”.


FoR received a grant of $300,000 from the Open Philanthropy Project in 2016, and so we are extremely grateful for the total $450,000 that the Open Philanthropy Project chose to invest in us in our earliest days, that set us well on our way to forming a full-time non-profit operation. We will be keeping in touch with the organization to help them evaluate the effects their investment had in the long term.
