Response to Part II, Section 2

To date, ICANN has been supported by accreditation and application fees and by one-time, start-up contributions from corporations and individuals pending the establishment of a permanent funding mechanism based on fees paid by those using and receiving the benefits of ICANN's services as a consensus development body. A list of donations received to date is attached as Appendix 15. In addition, ICANN has obtained non-recourse loans from several entities for a minimum term of one year, to be repaid after a permanent funding mechanism is created. A list of the loans received is attached as Appendix 16. It is anticipated that ICANN's permanent funding will be generated from fees paid by registries and registrars (and possibly others) involved with the management and administration of the worldwide system of Internet names and numbers that use and benefit from ICANN's consensus development processes.
