Dear Board,

Some thoughts about application for
501(c)status and OSGeo budget projections.

I think it would be better to project the
budget on a higher side (500K/year maybe). I believe that there
are possibilities of seeking funding in areas
like urban poverty, town planning,
waste management,rural development,
school education etc.Such funding could
greatly help some of the needy Local Chapters
in less well-endowed regions and enhance OSGeo's reach.
Big donors such as William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
  are funding "Open Educational Resources"
(See http://www.hewlett.org/Programs/Education/OER/openEdResources.htm)
and also for social and environmental issues
that OSGeo software projects could help
