Why does the IGF need funding?
The IGF Secretariat was established to be funded by voluntary contributions, and not through the UN Secretariat's regular budget. Without funding, the IGF is unable to deliver on its mandate.
Who can contribute to the IGF?
The IGF welcomes contributions from government agencies, non-governmental organizations as well as private entities. At this time, the IGF is not able to accept contributions from individuals. Individuals can contribute to the work related to the Internet Governance Forum through IGFSA (https://igfsa.org/).
How can Member States, private sector companies, and foundations support the IGF?
Please contact the IGF Secretariat and refer to the "How to Donate" process above. By making financial contributions to the IGF Trust Fund, donors enable the IGF to deliver on its mandate, including implementing the IGF annual meeting, and supporting intersessional and capacity development activities. In-kind contributions to the IGF are also accepted on a case-by-case basis.
