June data is out, and subscriptions went way down: http://blogs.gnome.org/foundation/2009/07/21/friends-of-gnome-update-3/
I thought it was interesting that subscriptions was the same (100) for May and June.
In addition to some of the updates to the program Stormy mentions below that Jaap volunteered to help with, there are a few more things that have been discussed that I was hoping to follow up on:
* Thermometer - shows donation data as it grows (Shaun & Andreas, I believe you were working on this? Any updates?)
* Add a "Donate" button to the footer of gnome.org (For example, Gimp at http://www.gimp.org/ has one right in their right hand navigation)
* We're approaching our $20k goal for Sysadmin - what's our next goal, and how much? (I like goals, I think it helps people to focus on them and want to attain them)
If anyone wants to grab a task, the help is appreciated!

I can have a go at it.
BTW how high were the donations in June? Did it go up?
