in reply to Call for donations and sponsorship

Coincidentally, I was looking through the site yesterday but couldn't find any clear details on how money is used for each of the different funds.

I've just had a quick look round now, and I'm still unsure which fund I should donate to, and precisely how the money will be used. This information may be on the site somewhere, but it wasn't anywhere I looked. How about linking to information about what the different funds are from the list of donors and the donation form?

    This isn't official, but as I understand it, there are two main funds, the YAS general fund, and the Perl development grant fund. The latter is administered by the Perl Foundation, which is a part of YAS. From that one come the grants which provide the recipents with salaries and travel expenses. (The YAS general fund also pays for the Monastery.)

    I got this from the YAS front page and the Perl foundation front page by scanning down the news items. Someone please correct any misunderstandings on my part.
