It’s been awhile since we last had an update. Here’s a quick summary of the last few months at the Digital Trust Foundation:

  • We announced the grantees from our first round of grant-making in March.
  • We opened and closed two more requests for proposals in our Understanding Socioeconomic Status and Online Privacy and Security and Assessing, Preventing, and Addressing Digital Abuse program areas.
  • We notified the applicants to the Understanding Socioeconomic Status and Online Privacy and Security of our grant decisions in mid-May.
  • We wrapped up work on the Foundation’s evaluation plan, and we are working with grantees to align their reporting and evaluation to our plan.

We are currently reviewing proposals for the Assessing, Preventing, and Addressing Digital Abuse program area. We expect to notify applicants of their status by the end of June. We are also working on grant agreements with our new grantees in the Understanding Socioeconomic Status and Online Privacy and Security program area. We expect to announce the funded projects later this month.

If you are seeking funding for consumer privacy projects, the Rose Foundation recently announced available funding in their Consumer Privacy Rights program area. The deadline for letters of inquiry is August 1, 2015.
