RE: [IP] Monetary support

Excuse me, but I think you're missing the point. People who donate money
like to know that their money is being used wisely. For some, this is an
absolute requirement.

I looked for this information before donating! Not finding it definitely
made my decision to donate harder than it needed to be. (And were I able
to afford a larger amount, this would have been a bigger factor).

Think of it as a hallmark of profesionalism that gives donors a degree of
comfort with their donation.

Without it, people are going to IMAGINE where the money goes. And you
don't want that!

It also helps people feel a part of the organization, by removing some of
the mystery. And that just may spark a few more donations -- but is
worthwhile even if not.

In fact, I suggest posting everything having to do with governance,
including minutes of the board meetings. Might spark a few more
volunteers, or maybe it would just give you a place to point people who
ask questions like this.

Excuse me, but why?  It has NEVER inspired anyone before, why should 
it now?   Hate to be so negative about this, but what is the point? 
Do you think that someone with great business acumen would be able to 
wave a magic wand and have money appear?   It hasn't happened before.
