The Markup challenges technology to serve the public good. The newsroom combines expertise in data analysis, engineering, and investigative reporting to quantify how technology—both as designed and as deployed—actually shapes policy, industry, and community. The Markup builds tech to investigate tech—whether that’s by digging into code to challenge a company’s claims or by building new tools that restore people’s agency over the technology in their lives—especially in a time of rapid, unchecked innovation.

This grant provides general support for The Markup to produce journalism, tools, and blueprints that ensure that everyone has the information they need to shape the world they deserve.
