Re: GNOME Foundation budget (Oct 2010-June 2011)

So yes, my question is how much do we have in the bank then? Without that figure it's hard to tell what's the real status.

Thank you.

Hi Fred,

Is your question, do we have enough money in the bank? If so, the answer
is yes. :)

We always keep a reserve, a nonprofit best practice. We also try to
spend what we bring in each year towards supporting our mission and
goals. So as Germán says, the "overspend" is money that was already
budgeted for those things from money we raised last year.

    Hi Fred,

    The original plan (Proposed budget) includes some expenditures we did
    not do last year and that were moved to this fiscal year.  For instance,
    $50,000 on Mobile, ~$30,000 on Women's Outreach Program, ~$10,000 on
    Marketing, ~$5,000 on a11y.  So, that explains the plan for the current
    year to be "negative" (that you can see on the sheets 'Budget' and 'Real
    +Proj').  You can compare it against the final budget for the last year

    On the other hand, there are some red figures in the 'Waterfall' sheet.
    In the case of 'Expenses' a red number means we have spent more planed
    until June. In the case of 'Income', a red number means we have received
    less than expected until June.

    The 'Real+Proj' sheet shows what we have spent and what we expect for
    the following months per item.  That said, we need to work on Friends of
