I do believe GNOME Foundation should have a clear (and well documented) way

I *do* understand it's keep private for security reasons and, just to be
more than clear, I am *not* questioning this.
What I'm questioning is: Could the Foundation provide a way for the members
to check whatever they want to check wrt this topic? is a bit outdated, but it exists.

minor correction: it's not really outdated. the foundation publishes
the reports for the previous fiscal year, as it's required by law.

answering questions on the current fiscal year is *complicated*, at
least until the budget is being prepared, i.e. this October.

I have proposed to the board that a financial report should be
published every month as that will enable the membership to be better
informed. I am already presenting a financial report to the board on a
monthly basis, so it would not be difficult to present something to
the membership and it would be in line with the board's commitment to
always freeze spending in the future if the report is a month late. I
hope that the board will approve this step towards transparency and
that I will be able to publish the 2015 budget (planned spending)
publicly in October.
