Sorry, that's not correct. 

The non-profit organization Haiku Inc. exists, so that the Haiku project can 
accept tax-deductible donations. Haiku Inc. is just the means for that, nothing 
more. The funds are bound to the Haiku project. The BOD is only the executing 
party. The decisions where to spend that money has to be made by the active 
Haiku contributors (BOD is likely a subset of that group). The BOD is then 
responsible to transfer the money.

In order to get money approved you of course have to contact the BOD. 

Please members of the BOD correct me, if I am wrong.
