Hi Muzammil,


There are also major foundations that fund as well. Here is a list surveyed for a report<http://columbia.academia.edu/ANelson/Papers/658194/Funding_Free_Expression_Perceptions_and_Reality_in_a_Changing_Landscape> on trends in Freedom of Expression Funding. Robert is right on that details on some of this funding is likely discrete.

  *   Adessium Foundation (The Netherlands)
  *   Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (United States)
  *   Canadian International Development Agency
  *   Danish International Development Agency
  *   Foreign Affairs and International Trade (Canada)
  *   Humanist Institute for Development Cooperation, Hivos (The Netherlands)
  *   International Development Research Centre, (Canada)
  *   John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation (United States)
  *   John S. and James L. Knight Foundation (United States)
  *   McCormick Tribune Foundation (United States)
  *   National Endowment for Democracy (United States)
  *   Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation
  *   Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  *   Open Society Foundations (OSF)
  *   Sigrid Rausing Trust (U.K.)
  *   Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency
  *   Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation
  *   U.S. Department of State, USAID, and Middle East Partnership Initiative (joint response)
  *   UNESCO

Muzammil,

The Govt of the Netherlands convened a ministerial level meeting on Internet Freedom this past December. The meeting brought together like minded countries that are supporting net activism in some way.

http://www.minbuza.nl/en/ministry/conference-on-internet-freedom (you can find a participant list there)
http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2011/12/internet-freedom.html

Some countries are very public about their funding programs (USG, Sweden, Netherlands, EU),  others are far more discrete to protect the sensitivity of their programming.

I look forward to the summary you might be putting together.

regards

Robert
