Coil, Mozilla, and Creative Commons have launched Grant for the Web , an ambitious initiative to empower individual creators and galvanize an alternative business model for online content

Independent creators on today’s web face a number of challenges, from omnipotent platforms, to opaque recommendation algorithms, to an underlying business model that rewards clicks, not quality.

So today, Coil , Mozilla and Creative Commons are launching a major project to reshape the economics of the web. Funded and led by Coil in collaboration with Mozilla and Creative Commons, Grant for the Web is a $100 million fund to empower individual creators, galvanize open-standard monetization service providers, and allow users to directly support content they value.
