The Omidyar Network Fund is a grantmaking nonprofit founded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and his wife Pam Omidyar. Its sister group, the Omidyar Network, is an LLC that makes philanthropic “impact investments.” Omidyar Network Fund and the Omidyar Network are often referred to interchangeably, and both support causes such as critical race theory aligned visions of “anti-racism” and left-of-center economic regulations. As of 2016, they have spent over $1 billion across over 400 for-profit and nonprofit groups. [1]

Lauren Booker Allen, the former senior manager of impact investing, has claimed that the Omidyar Network Fund and Omidyar Network have been influences on major philanthropic groups, including Laurene Powell Jobs’s Emerson Collective and Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan’s Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, for promoting a form of philanthropy modeled after Silicon Valley investing. [2]

The Omidyar Network Fund is a member of the Omidyar Group, the Omidyars’ umbrella coalition of organizations they have founded.

History

In 1998, Pierre and Pam Omidyar established the Omidyar Family Foundation, a philanthropic family foundation, after eBay launched its initial public offering, making the couple billionaires. Their initial goal was to empower underprivileged individuals through donations that mimicked the positive impact of eBay by dispersing entrepreneurship opportunities. [3] The Omidyars soon grew frustrated by regulations on nonprofits and decided that an LLC structure was more conducive to their charitable goals. In 2004, the Omidyars founded the Omidyar Network and the Omidyar Family Foundation became the Omidyar Network Fund. [4]

At first, the Omidyar Network and Omidyar Network Fund were focused on “microfinance, community, and enabling technologies.” Microfinance in particular was a priority, and the Omidyar Network spent $100 million on micro loans in developing countries. [5]  Eventually, these priorities evolved into providing the underprivileged access to capital, and “media, markets and transparency,” which later became five focuses: education, emerging technology, property rights, governance, and citizen engagement. [6]

In 2008, the Omidyar Network spun off Humanity United, a group devoted to peacebuilding and combating forced labor. [7]

In 2014, the Omidyar Network spun off Democracy Fund, an advocacy-philanthropy group which primarily supports Democratic politicians and organizations. [8]

In 2015, the Omidyar Network spun off Omidyar Technology Ventures, a philanthropic venture capital fund. [9]

From 2018-2020, the Omidyar Network spun off six organizations to operate independently with special focus areas: Flourish VenturesOmidyar Network IndiaSpero VenturesImaginable FuturesLuminate, and PLACE. [10]

Investment Style

The Omidyar Network structures its investment approach in the style of a Silicon Valley venture capital fund, an approach sometimes known as “venture philanthropy.” [14] The group often takes leadership roles in organizations it invests in. In 2016, it had board seats on half of the 200 companies in its portfolio. [15]

The Omidyar Network does not accept unsolicited proposals. It seeks out organizations to support. [16]

The Omidyar Network has targeted nonprofits that work with governments, including Bridge International Academies, an education group that operates in India and Africa. The group has also encouraged governments to deregulate financial sectors to permit more flexible investments, particularly to underfunded sectors. To this end, the Omidyar Network crafted the blueprint advocated by the G7 Alliance/Global Steering Group and has claimed to have successfully convinced the United States government to relax rules around investors considering social and environmental factors in their investment guidelines. [17]

Grantmaking Focuses

In 2018, the Omidyar Network established three new focuses which they have maintained to the present day. These new focuses indicate a leftward shift in the Omidyar Network’s priorities. [18]

Reimagining Capitalism

The “Reimagining Capitalism” focus is based on the premise that though “free markets have led to prosperity for some, they have also generated increasingly harmful and untenable inequities across economic, racial, and geographic lines.” Thus, the Omidyar Network seeks to address “structural challenges” so the economy will “serve the interests of all people and society.” [19]

In the Omidyar Network’s “Call to Reimagine Capitalism,” the group advocates building an “explicitly anti-racist and inclusive economy,” introducing more regulations to prohibit corporate consolidation, strengthening labor unions, and to enhance the power of governments to regulate markets since “markets do not self-regulate” and “we cannot leave markets to do government’s work.” [20]

In 2020 and 2021, the Omidyar Network Fund funded many left-of-center and left-wing groups through its Reimagining Capitalism focus, including giving $1 million to the Action Center on Race and the Economy Institute and the Amalgamated Charitable Foundation, $800,000 to American Affairs, $620,000 to American Compass, $525,000 to Americans for Financial Reform, $500,000 to the Center for American Progress, $500,000 to Tides Foundation, $500,000 to Center for Popular Democracy, $450,000 to B Lab, $350,000 to Citizens for Tax Justice, $300,000 to Demos, $250,000 to Tides Advocacy, and $222,000 to the Center for Economic and Policy Research. [21]

The Omidyar Network Fund’s Reimagining Capitalism focus also financed some prominent centrist groups, including giving $200,000 to the Brookings Institution, $250,000 to Gallup, and $100,000 to the New School. [22]

Responsible Technology

The Omidyar Network makes investments in companies which are working toward developing technologies that improve wellbeing. [23]

The Omidyar Network Fund’s Responsible Technology focus has funded many left-of-center and left-wing groups, including giving $1.5 million to the World Economic Forum, $800,000 to the New Venture Fund, $250,000 to Public Citizen, $250,000 to Color of Change, $200,000 to Fight for the Future, and $150,000 to the Center for Digital Democracy. [24]

Pluralism

The Omidyar Network supports efforts to cultivate a pluralistic global society by encouraging democracy and combatting racism. [25]

In 2020 and 2021, the Omidyar Network Fund’s Pluralism focus gave grants ranging from $50,000 to $300,000 to the Common Counsel Foundation, How to Build Up Inc., the Tides Center, the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute, Allied Media Projects Inc., Amalgamated Charitable Foundations Inc., Equity and Transformation, the Advancing Black Strategists Initiative, the Insight Center for Community Economic Development, and Jobs with Justice Education Fund. [26]

In 2020, after the death of George Floyd, the Omidyar Network spent $500,000 on organizations devoted to fighting for “racial justice.” [27]

Criticisms

The Omidyar Network Fund has been criticized for its secrecy. According to New York Magazine, the Omidyar Network Fund is a significant donor to Guidestar, a nonprofit dedicated to philanthropic transparency, which has unusually little information on the Omidyar Network. [28]

The Omidyar Network Fund has been criticized for funneling money through tax havens like the Cayman Islands. [29] The Omidyar Network was mentioned in the Paradise Papers, a collection of confidential documents which revealed instances of offshore financial concealment by individuals, corporations, and nonprofits throughout the world. The Paradise Papers indicated numerous previously undisclosed investments by the Omidyar Network in Indian media companies. The Paradise Papers were leaked through the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists not long after it received significant funding from the Omidyar Network. [30]

In 2007, Idealist/Actions Without Borders founder Ami Dar wrote a message on the Omidyar Network’s message board criticizing the Omidyar Network Fund for mistreating potential grantees by promising funds and then repeatedly cancelling meetings and refusing to communicate. Other nonprofit leaders echoed Dar’s comments. [31]
