Supported by WeTransfer

The Supporting Act Foundation was established by WeTransfer in 2021, and marks the most recent endeavor by the company to give back to its global creative community. Whether it’s donating 30% of all advertising space to support artists; speaking out against pressing issues like climate change; or partnering with University of the Underground to launch the world’s first free Master’s program, WeTransfer believes in a better internet, and a better world, for everyone. To celebrate the launch of the Supporting Act, the company donated €1 million to the foundation, pledging a further 1% of revenue each year plus access to its global advertising and editorial platforms.
