Luminate is a global philanthropic organisation focused on empowering people and institutions to work together to build just and fair societies. It was established in 2018 by Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay.

Luminate works with its investees and partners to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate in, and influence, the issues affecting their societies, and to make government, corporations, media, and those in positions of power more responsive and more accountable. We work with our partners to deliver impact in four areas that underpin strong societies: Civic Empowerment, Data & Digital Rights, Financial Transparency, and Independent Media. Our work in all these areas is focused on creating long-term change while remaining agile enough to respond to political and social shifts as they emerge.
