As part of its strategy to ensure the long-term future of the IETF, the IETF LLC maintains the IETF Endowment. This is a donor-restricted fund with published rules on how it is managed and how the fund is used, with the capital invested in line with the IETF LLC Investment Policy Statement.
The organizations below have made significant multi-year commitments to the IETF Endowment while multiple individuals have provided personal donations.
Now is a great time to donate to the IETF Endowment as the Internet Society has made a matching pledge with a 2-for-1 match on the first $12 million raised and 1-for-1 match on the next $6 million, which could see us raise an additional $30 million for the IETF Endowment.
Our initial goal is to raise a total of $50m by the end of 2027.
