Organization Description

Open Technology Fund (OTF) is a non-profit and independent organization that contributed to advancing global Internet freedom. The organization supports projects focusing on counteracting repressive surveillance and censorship, enabling worldwide citizens to exercise their fundamental human rights online.

As of 2019, the Open Technology Fund became a non-profit and independent corporation and a U.S. Agency for Global Media grantee. Before that, it had operated as a program of Radio Free Asia.

Created in 2012 within Radio Free Asia as a pilot program, the OTF adopted a policy of supporting global internet freedom initiatives under U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the State Department. Today, RFA is looking into technologies that help its audiences avoid censorship and surveillance.
