I'm perplexed, speaking as a previous officer of the ASF -  Nearly
everything we spent money on was public.  I know the staff and infra
budgets are.  I wrote them for two years.

At the moment I have no opinion on if this was good or bad to spend on;
however as a 501c(3) vs 501c(6) you have limits on what can be asked for
untargeted donations.
