Mark Surman

Open philanthropy


So, what's the big idea?

Mark provided support and thought leadership on how community, networks and all things ‘open’ can increase the impact of the social innovations supported by the Shuttleworth Foundation.

A community technology activist for almost 20 years, Mark is currently the executive director of the Mozilla Foundation, with a focus on inventing new ways to promote openness and opportunity on the Internet.

Mark Surman's flash grant nominations

Twice a year we award a number of small grants to a collection of social change agents, no strings attached, in support of their work. We call these Flash Grants and recipients are selected based on nominations from our Fellows. Each award is worth $5,000.
