Open Society Foundations

Open Society Foundations

The Open Society Foundations form a global network of entities and programs committed to local knowledge and national expertise. Our network includes national and regional foundations as well as programs with regional or global reach operating in more than 100 countries including hubs in Europe and the United States.

The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant societies whose governments are accountable and open to the criticism, whose laws and policies are open to debate and correction, and whose political institutions are open to the participation of all people. We seek to strengthen justice and the rule of law; broaden respect for human rights, including the rights of minorities; encourage pluralism and a robust diversity of opinion; deepen democratic practice and participation; expand economic equity; support effective governance; and invest in individuals, social movements that advance these goals.

The Open Society Foundations are committed to inclusion, anti-discrimination, and equality of treatment for all persons regardless of their race, colour, sex (gender), religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or membership in any other minority or marginalised group. We ensure that our dealings with everyone in our network are characterised by mutual respect and a high regard for each other’s dignity.
