OUR MISSION

The TDF Foundation was established in 2008 as an independent entity, with a mission to advance the positive impact of technology in society. We realize not every problem can be solved with traditional for-profit models and the Foundation provides grants and other funding options to social and academic organizations that share our mission.

The Foundation is particularly interested in supporting initiatives that otherwise do not attract enough attention and capital via traditional funding sources. These include initiatives focused on traditionally underserved communities or underfunded research areas.

The TDF Foundation collaborates with both public and private organizations to identify the best projects to support. At our core, we are investors, and we look to make the greatest return to society in the projects that we support via the Foundation.
