Sui Foundation

The Sui Foundation supports and empowers builders and creators on the Sui ecosystem.

The Sui Foundation is an independent organization that grows and cultivates long-term value in the Sui ecosystem. Importantly, the Sui Foundation supports creating products that enable individuals and creators to have unprecedented ownership over their data and content.
The Sui Foundation's goal is to onboard the next billion users to web3 by supporting the advancement and global adoption of the Sui blockchain.
The Sui Foundation deploys its resources to fund projects that build on Sui and support the creation of a cohesive ecosystem with long-term adoption. In particular, the Foundation aims to provide the right incentives for founders, creators, developers, and builders to deliver key ecosystem functionality.
The Sui Foundation is launching an initial Developer Grant Program. This program distributes Sui Foundation funds, including SUI tokens, on a competitive grant basis. Grants are reviewed to determine the proposals best aligned with the network’s long-term interest.

In the future, the Sui Foundation will launch additional programs aimed at supporting community development, infrastructure maintenance, educational materials, and other activities. Stay tuned!

Developer Grants Program

The Sui Foundation is looking for amazing developers to build native Sui apps.

Our mission is to accelerate the adoption of web3 via Sui and award program funds to developers who help build the decentralized future.

Developers will be selected based on responses to the linked questionnaire, with preference given to innovative projects that benefit the Sui ecosystem.

Selected applicants will receive a small initial grant to get started, and awarded additional funding upon achieving specific milestones.

Sui Foundation grants vary in size and type of currency depending on the application quality and opportunity. Grants will range from $10k-100k, with the possibility of additional SUI token rewards.

All grant proposals should be for open source projects, to benefit the broader Sui community. Applicants will be required to pass an identity verification and sanctions screening process if selected to receive a grant.

The Sui Foundation funds sustainable projects that add long-term value to the Sui ecosystem.
