W3C (The World Wide Web Consortium) is an international community that develops open protocols and guidelines ensuring the long-term growth of the web. Its primary responsibility is to standardize web technologies.

The organization follows processes that promote the development of high-quality standards based on community consensus. All stakeholders can have a voice in the development of W3C standards, including members both large and small, as well as the public.

W3C receives funds from W3C member dues, research grants and other sources of private and public funding, and individual donations of money and equipment.

W3C was formed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1994 and is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States. Berners-Lee began W3C when he wrote the first version of the "HyperText Markup Language" (HTML), the document formatting language with the capability for hypertext links that became the primary publishing format for the Web.

W3C does not have a single physical headquarters but it is hosted by four institutions: MIT, ERCIM, Keio University, and Beihang University. The W3C staff is distributed around the world, but there are concentrations of people in Massachusetts, United States; Sophia-Antipolis, France; and Tokyo Japan. In addition, W3C is represented in 17 other regions of the world via representatives based at organizations, which are known as "W3C Offices."
