The ICZN is a scientific charity and does not automatically receive funds from any government or major institution. We exist only on contributions, grants and sales of our publications (subscriptions to the BZN and sales of the Code and other books). Our fundraising addresses two sets of needs – our running costs (unrestricted funds) and our project costs (restricted funds). Through supporting the former you can help fund the running of the secretariat, publication of the journal, meeting costs for the Commissioners (currently covered by Commissioners individually) and through the latter you can fund projects such as ZooBank or development of the 5th Code (some aspects of these latter points may also be covered in unrestricted costs, as they constitute core business for the ICZN).
