Our Funding Policy

The Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity was founded in 2015 with a major grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Since our founding, we have received financial support from diverse sources, including private donors, and grants, and we also accept occasional cy pres court-awarded settlements.

All individual and corporate donors agree to contribute their funds as gifts in support of independent academic research and education. CLTC retains full discretion on the design, implementation, and expenditures for all activities enabled by these gifts.
