The Internet Society (ISOC) recently launched the IETF Endowment to 
provide the IETF with direct financial support aimed at ensuring 
long-term, sustainable funding for the development, evolution, and use 
of open Internet protocols.

ARIN stands behind the work of the IETF and the thousands of volunteer 
contributors from around the world who work to develop and maintain the 
open protocols that make the Internet possible. In January of this year, 
the ARIN Board of Trustees 
(https://www.arin.net/about_us/bot/bot2016_0111.html) approved 
contributing up to two million dollars to the IETF Endowment, reflecting 
this strong commitment by the ARIN community to the Internet protocols 
and related work of the IETF.

Today, ARIN has made an initial contribution of one million dollars to 
the IETF Endowment. This was done in coordination with contributions 
from other RIRs and the Internet Society. ARIN will undertake a second 
contribution of similar amount at a later date, in conjunction with 
additional organizations contributing financial support to the endowment.
