  • All amounts are in US dollars.
  • FOSS4G revenues and expenses are netted out to anticipated profit.
  • The budget presumes gaining one new sustaining sponsor (50K), one new sustaining sponsor (10K) and four new associate sponsor (12K).
  • The dependence of the above budget on $72K in new sponsorship in 2009 means we could easily drop into a serious deficit situation if these objectives are not met. The Finance committee feels that the Marketing portion be restricted such that only half may be spent in the first half of the year, and that a budget review be held at the half year point to consider adjustments.
  • It is anticipated that the foundation will carry reserves on the order of $150K over from 2008.
