About the Knowledge Standards Foundation

Our mission is to help bring the encyclosphere into being. To make this happen, there are many things we (all of us) need to do. There’s almost certainly something for you to do!

The Knowledge Standards Foundation was founded in September 2019 by Wikipedia ex-founder Larry Sanger and a growing team. We are located in central Ohio and are seeking 501(c)(3) nonprofit status.

We are very serious indeed about our founding principles. Among other things, we will take donations only from individuals and foundations (not for-profit corporations or governments), and we will carefully review the sourcing of any large donations. We are also committed to keeping the encyclosphere every bit as politically neutral as the blogosphere or the DNS (website naming and locating) system.
