as a German approved, charitable/non-profit organization, we are bound 
to the subject of use for donations we receive. That means, if someone 
explicitly donates for or for LibreOffice, money will be 
used exclusively for this purpose. You could, e.g., also donate to a 
specific project we set-up (like developing XYZ component), then the 
donation would have to be used exclusively for that.

The change of our name reflects we are supporting not only OOo or LibO, 
but all free office suites.
