Subject RE: Donations?

Apache OpenOffice does not receive donations and does not manage a budget.

It happens there are some funds "on-account" at the ASF that are available to OpenOffice.
 Those arrived in an unusual manner in the early history of the project.  That exception is
unlikely to repeat.

Generally, the Apache Software Foundation has a budget and manages funds.  There are treasurer
reports in every monthly Board Report at the foundation level.  You can see those at
 <http://www.apache.org/foundation/board/calendar.html>.

In some case, projects can request that funds available for some purpose be expended on behalf
of the project.  For example, application for and renewal of trademark registrations is done
by requests to the VP Branding.  That VP will make requests for budget to cover anticipated
expenses of that kind.  Similarly, Infrastructure might be worked with to fund the contract
labor and any hardware and operating costs of build slaves dedicated for OpenOffice use.
