Stormy posts to the Foundation blog that updates to news.gnome.org, and she just recently started cross-posting her weekly updates to Planet GNOME as well.
If you look at our three month trend:
- April: 110 donors, $3,316 donations for an average of $30
- May: 258 donors, $7,341 donations for an average of $28
- June: 116 donors, $1,585 donations for an average of $14
In May and June, 100 of those donors were Friends of GNOME donors donating $10 month. This highlights why monthly donors are so important – one time donors come and go, and with the call for help that was put out, you can see the effect. But when that ends, it’s the monthly donors that help with consistent donations that give GNOME the ability to forecast incoming revenue that can be used to help the organization.
Stormy’s post contains more information on donations as well as some graphs showing monthly and yearly trends.
