MacArthur Foundation

The MacArthur Foundation supported APC’s early network development through a grant to IGC Networks in the United States, which enabled the set-up of grassroots non-profit email providers throughout the Americas, the former Soviet Union, and Asia. It also provided funding for the APC Women’s Networking Support Programme team of 40 women who ran the communications and outreach initiative during the fourth World Conference on Women in 1995. MacArthur also made a substantial contribution to the development of APC’s ActionApps.
