The Open Society Foundations is private funder of independent groups working for justice, democratic governance, and human rights in more than 120 countries, providing thousands of grants every year through a network of national and regional foundations and offices. They support a diverse array of independent voices and independent organizations around the world—the civil society that provides a creative and dynamic link between the governing and the governed. They specially focus on supporting those who face discrimination for who they are, such as Europe’s Roma people, and for those who find themselves pushed to the margins of mainstream society—such as drug users, prisoners, or sex workers.
