Thanks for getting our treasurer involved.
I had it on my todo list to get in touch with our treasurer in order to clarify 
how the money is pratical is spent in case the proposal gets accepted.

I hope that the proposal and the may be following process does not violate our 
charitable status and I am looking to work together with our treasurer to keep 
us on the right way.

Best regards, Oliver.
