The forum, which claims to be a not-for profit organization, saw a growth of almost 50 percent in its total income from 2002/2003 to 2006/2007. The surplus added to the foundation capital went up from around $195 to around $2.6m in the same period. Roughly 30 percent of the income comes from members and participation fees, the rest comes from partnerships. Membership fee is around $40,000.
