Calendar Project donations update

One month ago, I reported that the Calendar Project is now finally able to accept donations through the community giving program of the Mozilla Foundation. So I guess it’s time to reveal how we have done so far.

I currently have only received the numbers for the last two weeks of March (we started accepting donations on March 16 2009) and those numbers look quite promising. In the first five days after the initial announcement people donated $698.05 to Calendar using PayPal. For the remaining 10 days of March we took in another $437.05 bringing us to a total of $1135.10 for March through PayPal*.

We will now discuss internally on how to allocate this money in the most effective and efficient manner for the project. We will also be thinking hard about further fund raising possibilities.

Let me use this opportunity to thank everybody who has donated to the Calendar Project so far and to everyone who is planning on doing this in the future. I would also be interested in any ideas that you (our community) might have on how to raise our fund-raising capabilities.

* Please note that the total donation number should be higher than that since this doesn’t include any donations this month (April) or any check donations.
