This is a lot of different steps and could be broken down into multiple issues.

We currently accept financial donations via paypal. This involves a lot of

1) Downloading the data from Paypal.
2) Entering it into the Friends of GNOME spreadsheet.
3) Blogging about it on the Foundation blog.
4) Entering it into the GNOME Foundation's GNUCash spreadsheet. (I've attached
directions on how we currently do it and some ideas for how German thinks we
could do it.)
5) Figure out which donors get which gifts, print out address labels.
6) Figure out which donors want their names on the website, add them. 

Also as the donations come in, I send thank you notes.

It's also possible we could use CiviCRM to automate the thank you notes,
tracking who gets what gifts and printing the labels.

I think the whole process is very manual now, time consuming and probably error

I've attached some info. I can also provide sample data.
