I'm not sure if discussions on donations have progressed any further. I just 
wanted to suggest something relatively simple with regards to reporting 
donations. It would be quite nice to have a quarterly post on the website 
describing the following:
-Current balance of Haiku Inc
-Total donations received in the quarter
-Brief outline on spending for the quarter
-Target for next quarter and what the project plans to spend out on
In terms of getting the information for the post I do know you can download 
statements from Network for Good and Paypal. I don't know if there is an easy 
method of pulling off information for the bank account that Haiku Inc uses.
My suggestion would be for Michael to pass over this information to someone who 
is compiling the post. I don't know if this would contain sensitive information 
or if it would have to be a trusted individual who handles it. Maybe anything 
sensitive can be stripped out first, although that would be more time 
consuming. I would like to ask Michael if he would be happy doing this. I would 
hope that it wouldn't be too much of a burden.
As for setting goals/targets maybe it would be worth the admin group having a 
meeting prior to the end of each quarter to discuss this?
If no one objects I would like to be the one to compile a post each quarter. I 
welcome any suggestions or comments on the above.

PS I still want to have a bit of a nag for a paypal subscription button on the 
donations page. I’d like give a regular amount to the project and this would be 
the most convenient method for me.
