OTOH, I have wonder if it would be fair to our current Advisory Board

You want to lower ad board fees?

$10K is a ridiculously small amount of money for many of the companies funding the foundation. At this price level, we already have a small budget. We might want to consider *increasing* ad board fees, especially since I have the impression that this year we are giving good value for money in terms of networking and feedback & access.

I'm thinking that we can get perhaps 8 small companies supporting with
1000 USD per year, what could we offer them? what would we keep as
exclusive to our AB members?

We might follow the GIMP & KDE models, and simply have a page where we list benefactors of the foundation, separately from the advisory board.
