This will allow the Warmshowers Community a centralized place for comments, questions, and concerns related to touring and hosting. As always, we ask that you follow our community guidelines when posting.

2015 Approved Budget for Warmshowers.org Foundation

** This budget was approved by the Board at the May 31, 2015 meeting **

In past years we haven't had a budget, but have rather just been happy that we had enough contributions to get by. Now that we are going to have paid (contract) work done, we need to be clear on what we expect both for goal setting and expectation setting.

We are all well aware that

  • We have never raised this much before
  • We will need to grow beyond this budget in coming years to meet our goals
  • If we are successful in our fundraising plans we will be able to expand beyond this level this year.
