Funding for Protocol Development & Ecosystem Support

Funding is available for teams working to improve Zcash, and further financial privacy on the Zcash network and beyond. There are currently two funding gateways within the Zcash ecosytem: open grants and invite-only grants.


1. Zcash Community Grants

This program funds independent teams to perform major ongoing development (or other work) that benefits the Zcash ecosystem. Grants are chosen by a five-person committee elected by the Zcash community. Teams and organizations that are interested in advancing the usability, security, privacy and adoption of Zcash are strongly encouraged to apply for a Zcash Community Grant.

2. Zcash Minor Grants

ZOMG (Zcash Open Major Grants)
The Zcash Foundation is currently accepting application for its Minor Grants program, intended to fund smaller grants that contribute to the Foundation’s goal of financial privacy.
