Dear FreeBSD Community,

The FreeBSD Foundation would like to thank everyone for your donations 
in 2008. We are extremely grateful to everyone who dug deep in their
pockets, during these hard times, to help us get very close to our goal.
We raised $282,481 towards our goal of $300,000. With the downturn in
the economy, we were very concerned about getting close to our goal. By
the end of November, we had only raised $190,000. We sent out a plea for
donations and we received 173 donations in December!

This year we had 450 donors, compared to 374 last year. We were
impressed with all the donations received from developers and other
volunteers who already put in countless hours supporting the project.

We will be posting our 2009 budget soon, so you can see how we plan to
spend the funds.


The FreeBSD Foundation
