Regarding the examples.

Since there seems to be a pass at anonymizing the examples, I suggest to 
remove the specific languages in parenth from the first example as well:

    A coalition of organizations working on remote participation tools 
and content receive a long-term grant to support localization efforts 
for 7 local languages not covered under the existing ICANN’s framework 
(Bahasa, Tagalog, Dutch, Hindi, Japanese, Malay, Urdu).

This one:
   A donation (unrestricted gift) to an organization that supports 
standards development in relation to the Internet’s unique identifier 

This doesn't fly well. First, "an organization that supports standards 
development"  is ill-defined, there are organizations that develop 
standards, like IETF, IEEE, or the W3C, and they are called SDOs. Why 
not use that term ? Second, there are several organizations that develop 
standards "in relation to Internet's unique identifier systems" and they 
all do other standards that are unrelated to DNS or IP, some even are 
working to replace them ;), so "unrestricted gift" is clearly off.

Same comment on "unrestricted gift" for the next one on bind. This 
doesn't add anything of value to the example and it introduces a risk 
even as a mission scoping guidelines.

This one:

   5 year grants to support the development of NGOs and Internet 
Governance forums in 100 locations at local, national, regional and 
global level increases participation at ICANN processes by 35%.

The sentence seems to missing something before "increases" ? And what 
does "participation at ICANN processes" mean ? Are the "Internet 
Governance forums" mentioned here the regional UN/IGF ? So is this 
saying ICANN ok funding the UN ?

And finally, this one, that I provided early on:

Support work done by other organizations that are of common interest 
such as:
●	enhanced Web security and privacy,
●	work on handling Web related IDN and Universal acceptance issues,
●	..

I suggest, in order to keep the spirit of my example, to qualify the 
type of organizations mentioned here as developing open standards, not 
just any random organization working around them. Also, "other" doesn't 
refer to anything here.

   Support work done by open standards developing organizations that are 
of common interest for all, such as:
