Support Us

The DEC relies on a wide range of sources to develop its activities and programs. Most of our funding supports the work of students and researchers. This is an expensive undertaking, and we need your help to foster the DEC’s mission for a better digital society. Our work would not be possible without the generous help of our supporters, who have enabled us to expand and strengthen our activities, grow the impact of our research and advocacy work, and reach more stakeholders.

Financial support

The DEC partners with individuals, families, associations, agencies, foundations, groups, institutions, organizations, and other stakeholders in various ways. You can donate as an individual, company, foundation, or trust. You can sponsor a project, name a scholarship or a program, or fund a specific activity relevant to the DEC’s objectives.

You can volunteer your time, offer your expertise, or help us engage your local and global communities. You can facilitate or advertise our work or help us fundraising. You can share a good idea or a valuable experience, put us in touch with potential donors, give us feedback on improving what we are doing, or expanding the range of our activities.

We welcome the chance to speak to new potential supporters interested in our work and aim to develop long-term, meaningful partnerships. We know that no two donors are the same, so we work closely to find areas of the DEC’s activities and interests that align with our donors’ own objectives.
