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
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.
