OSI is leaving Baltimore. What will that mean for the programs it funds?

February 17, 2023

After 25 years, the Open Society Foundations, which funds grants around the world that focus on promoting justice, democracy and human rights, is closing its Baltimore location — its only U.S. field office. Tom Perriello, executive director of Open Society U.S., said the organization is consolidating and restructuring and putting more resources into its global work. A big focus for the foundation, he said, is to try and move more leadership, resources and programming into areas like Africa, Latin America and Asia. Offices in Nigeria, Afghanistan and Myanmar have also closed in the last few years.
