Established in 2003, and guided by the Mozilla Manifesto, the Mozilla Foundation has been leading the fight for a healthy internet for more than 20 years. The Mozilla Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit, is the sole owner of Mozilla Corporation, the company behind Firefox, a browser built by the open source movement. Our mission is to ensure that the Internet is open and accessible to all. It is also vital: as centralization, surveillance, exclusion and other online threats proliferate, we need a movement to keep the web a global resource.
In 2020, we launched a multi-year investment strategy focused on advancing ‘Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence’ globally. As AI is dramatically changing our online lives, we seek to ensure that AI improves human experience through designing AI systems that allow for user agency and hold companies accountable for its results. Our approach to Trustworthy AI and an outline of our Theory of Change is described in greater detail here.
