Ask the Ray

" I want to know more about how The Ray actually works. Who funds The Ray? "

Abdul Razaq

Great question! The Ray is 501c3 nonprofit charity organization. We receive an endowment from the Ray C. Anderson Foundation and are also supported through individual donations.

Many of our projects are funded through the public-private-philanthropic (P4) model, meaning that The Ray brings public/government partners and corporations together with The Ray to fund many of our demonstration projects. The Ray is at its best when we work together across sectors to achieve our common goals! If you go to the Technology portion of our website, you will see a "Powered By" section. This indicates the partners that support the project, financially or otherwise.
