Inforum Course: Fundraising For Internet Society Chapters

The Internet Society’s way of bringing the Internet to everyone combines our unmatched global reach with a strong foundation in technology, open standards development, and public policy.

We take action at every level. Internet Society Chapters are individual members of the Internet Society that are committed to bringing innovative solutions to meet the needs of people.

Chapters make up and extended community that works to undertake a variety of activities. Find one near you.
