Publicity about donations ?

Moritz Lennert
Dear all,

Yesterday we received a donation of 10,00€ from someone, with the message:

 >Thanks for your work! just a little contribution for GrassGIS >development

What do you think: should we send a public thank you for every donation
received to the grass-user mailing list ? Should we create a list of
names of all donors in the current year ?

If we decide to do some publicity, we should add something like

"All donors are listed at http://XXX.CCC [or: All donors are announced
on the grass-user list]. If you prefer to remain anonymous, please say
so explicitely in the message accompanying your donation."

at

https://grass.osgeo.org/donations/

Any opinions ?

Moritz

If I may say, yes, donations should be listed publicly. Even if registered as
"Anonymous".

What do you think: should we send a public thank you for every donation
received to the grass-user mailing list ? Should we create a list of
names of all donors in the current year ?

If we decide to do some publicity, we should add something like

"All donors are listed at http://XXX.CCC [or: All donors are announced
on the grass-user list]. If you prefer to remain anonymous, please say
so explicitely in the message accompanying your donation."

Any opinions ?


+1 I like the idea to publicly acknowledge donors, even for small amounts. It communicates the importance of the gesture. About how to do so: both announcing every donation in ML and listing all donors in one place sound good to me. This could also have an emulation effect. Sometimes a person could refrain for donating a small amount thinking that it doesn't have an impact after all, but also small donations are important. Not to mention the fact that they contribute to build a positive image of the software value within the community.

My 2 eurocents,
