Charitable Trust / Donor Advised Funds
Donations made directly through a charitable trust or DAFs must be made to the Internet Society on IETF’s behalf. We ask that you alert IETF if you intend to make such a gift, and include IETF Endowment in your gift designation. Relevant information needed might include:
Mailing Address: Internet Society
ATTN: IETF Endowment
11710 Plaza America Drive #400, Reston, VA 20190
Please contact IETF’s Development Department for additional information.
IETF welcomes wire transfers, which saves us credit card processing fees, and avoids the unpredictability of mail options. To receive our Wire Transfer Instructions, please email contact Director of Development Lee-Berkeley Shaw.
Donation via Check or Cash
To make a gift via check or cash, please include contact information for yourself (an email is sufficient) and any gift designations you may have, and for checks, please make to: IETF Administration, LLC. These can be mailed to:
IETF Administration LLC
5177 Brandin Court
Fremont, CA 94538
You will receive confirmation of your donation, as well as a tax acknowledgement upon receipt.
Donation of Stock
The IETF would be pleased to accept gifts of stock. Gifts of stock may be directed towards either operating support or the Endowment. If you wish to make other arrangements or would like to request our Stock Donation Instruction Sheet, contact Director of Development Lee-Berkeley Shaw.
If you are considering leaving a bequest to IETF in your will, we encourage you to let us know. We’d be pleased to help with any information you may need to complete paperwork, and happy to talk through ways to designate that gift to represent your wishes most impactfully. Please contact Director of Development Lee-Berkeley Shaw.
