About Us

The Internet Governance Forum Secretariat is funded through donations from various stakeholder groups. While host countries bear the majority of the costs associated with holding the annual IGF meeting, the IGF Secretariat's activities are funded through extra-budgetary contributions paid into a multi-donor Trust Fund administered by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA). All contributions are administered and accounted for in accordance with United Nations Financial Rules and Regulations and other applicable directives, procedures and practices.

Contributions from all stakeholders are welcome, including in-kind donations. 

The Secretariat is grateful to IGF Trust Fund donors, listed below in order of the size of their total contribution since 2006.
