W3C Is Transitioning to Nonprofit Status
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) announced the following:
The World Wide Web Consortium is set to pursue 501(c)(3) non-profit status. The launch as a new legal entity in January 2023 preserves the core mission of the Consortium to shepherd the web by developing open standards with contributions from W3C Members, staff, and the international community. …
At the operational level, which is not changing, W3C Members are bound together for our technical work, united around the W3C’s mission to lead the web to its full potential by creating open standards that ensure that the web remains open, accessible, internationalized, secure, and interoperable for everyone around the globe. …
Our transition to launch the legal entity includes concrete stages—adoption of Bylaws: filing for 501(c)(3) non-profit status; election and seating of a Board of Directors—all to transfer staff, Member contracts, and operations to the new structure.
As W3C was created to address the needs of the early web, our evolution to a public-interest non-profit is not just to continue our community effort, but to mature and grow to meet the needs of the web of the future.
