  1. As a consequence of the ICMI General Assembly and Executive Committee meetings held in Quebec, August 1992, it was decided to establish an ICMI Solidarity Fund based on private contributions. The Solidarity Fund is mounted to assist mathematics education and mathematics educators in less affluent countries. Its money can only be spent (by a committee chaired by Professor Jean-Pierre Kahane) to serve such purposes and is therefore not part of ICMI's general resources. However, the appearance of the Solidarity Fund on the ICMI accounts for 1995 is due to the wish to keep ICMI's number of different bank accounts low. The accounts exhibit the ICMI balances and the Solidarity Fund balances separately.

  2. Part of the expenses concerning the EC meeting held in Madrid in February 1995 were covered by fees for lectures given by EC members at a seminar held by CIDE, Madrid.

  3. The UNESCO/ROSTE office generously contributed a grant of US$ 3.000 to the ICMI Study Conference on Perspectives of the Teaching of Geometry for the 21st Century, held in Catania, Sicily (Italy), 28 September - 2 October 1995. The payment, which is divided into two parts - US$ 2.000 and 1.000, respectively - was not yet made at the time of the conference. So, ICMI made an outlay of US$ 3.000 to the conference, for later reimbursement.

  4. A great deal of ICMI's expenditures in 1994 concerning the ICMI Study Conference on What is Research in Mathematics Education, and What Are Its Effects, held at the University of Maryland (USA), 8 - 11 May 1994, were reimbursed from the net surplus of the conference budget in 1995.

  5. SEACME 7 (The Seventh South East Asia Conference on Mathematics Education) is to be held in Hanoi (Vietnam) in June 1996.

  6. In addition to the amounts displayed directly in the accounts, considerable extra sums should appear but do not and cannot. In 1995 Roskilde University (the Secretary's home institution) has contributed a substantial support to ICMI's work (e.g. telephone and -fax, e-mail facilities, postage, all the printing and distribution costs of the Bulletin, plus secretarial help of various sorts). It is estimated that the total contribution of Roskilde University is equivalent about US$ 5.000. The ICMI Executive Committee expresses its gratitude for this generous support.

The Executive Committee's thanks also go to the institutions of its other members. These institutions, too, have given invisible support to ICMI's work in a variety of ways. For instance, in many cases these institutions have paid travel and other expenses related to participation in EC meetings and soforth.
