Legendary Grants

FUTO is new. The struggle is not. We award five to six figure grants to support projects and programmers who have been fighting the good fight for years.

We definitely have missed plenty of worthy projects! If you know of an established group or individual that helps users and developers keep control of their tech and avoid the oligopoly’s tech stack, let us know. We’re always looking for new grantees that can continue to have an impact.
