Archewell Foundation helps to launch $1.5 million Responsible Technology Youth Power Fund initiative

Meghan and Harry's Archewell Foundation announced this week that it is a founding partner of a newly created  Responsible Technology Youth Power Fund. The RT Youth Power Fund is described as "the first of its kind to invite youth and intergenerationally-led organizations to shape the future of the technology movement."  

Kind thoughts for Meghan Markle
Per the web site the RTYPF say that young people are a powerful force in the pursuit of a more inclusive and equitable technology ecosystem. However, cultural, social, and infrastructural barriers often prevent youth-led organizations and intergenerational partnerships from accessing funding and realizing their full power and potential in shaping responsible technology. 

As such, 11 initial partner organizations, including Archewell, have raised $1.5 million and are now accepting applications from 501(c)3 eligible public charities with award amounts ranging from $25,000 to $200,000, based on the stage of the organization and its funding need. 

The responsible technology movement is about:

  • Building, shaping, and stewarding our tech ecosystem to safeguard human rights
  • Leveraging technology platforms to address social, cultural, political, or environmental problems
  • Ensuring equitable access to the benefits of technology
  • Mitigating the harmful impacts of technology in communities
