Mission: Mozilla foundation improves and protects the internet as a public resource by working with thousands of volunteers to (1) keep the internet a universal open platform and (2) promote continued innovation on the internet.
Programs: Agenda settingmozilla deploys its expertise to identify threats to and opportunities for a healthy internet. We currently assess internet health across five categories: privacy and security; open innovation; decentralization; web literacy; and digital inclusion. Mozilla then works to make internet health issues part of mainstream, public discourse. Mozilla publishes an annual internet health report, an open-source document that explores these issues. In 2017, mozilla spent $ 966,365 to support its agenda-setting work.
movement buildingmozilla's organizing team mobilizes millions of people to stand up for a healthy internet. It raises awareness, inspires action and runs large scale public education campaigns around topics like online privacy and digital inclusion. In 2017, mozilla's online mobilization work included public education and advocacy campaigns around data protection, the security of connected products, copyright and net neutrality. These campaigns reached millions of people in dozens of countries. In 2017, mozilla spent $2,733,016 to support its movement building work.
leadership developmentmozilla provides support and a gathering place for a broad global community working on internet health. This includes a set of projects to identify, connect and support leaders from diverse fields like technology, science, education and internet policy. Mozilla carries out this work through fellowships and open leadership training programs. We also carry out this work through grant programs like the mozilla gigabit community fund, which supports community innovators, and events like the mozilla festival, which gathers 2,500 like-minded internet health advocates annually. In 2017, mozilla spent $ 13,256,720 to support the mozilla leadership program.
coral and other projectsas a legacy of programs started prior to 2016, mozilla continues to provide support to a set of communities developing open-source software to address key internet health issues such as digital inclusion and education. The primary activity in this area during 2017 was support for the coral project, a community of developers creating tools for more civic online dialogue.
