The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing is supported in part by the Simons Foundation.

We welcome funding from a variety of sources:

We collaborate with industry through our Industry Partner program, which currently includes Apple, Google, JP Morgan, NTT Research, PayPal, Roc360, and VMware.

We have received support from many grantmakers, including the National Science Foundation (NSF), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Security Agency (NSA), Kavli Foundation, McGovern Foundation, Schmidt Futures, Sloan Foundation, Templeton Foundation, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.

We partner with academic institutions around the world in support of our Research Fellowships program.

We also welcome contributions from private individuals to our Simons Institute Fund and our Richard M. Karp Fund, which honors the scientific contributions of our founding director, Dick Karp.
