Dear Haskellers, 

The Haskell.org Committee [1] manages funds for haskell.org and oversees haskell.org infrastructure.  

The funds available to Haskell.org generally come from two sources: 1) Mentor payments from the Google Summer of Code program. 2) Since the end of 2013, occasional donations [2] from the Haskell community at large. Our funds are held by Software in the Public Interest, a 501(c)3 US non-profit, through which we also accept donations. In return for its services, SPI receives 5% of donations to Haskell.org. 

According to our charter, "Each year, the committee will post a statement of the haskell.org assets, and the transactions for that year.” We apologize for having been delinquent in this regard. 

Included in this message is a brief statement of Haskell.org assets over the period 31 December 2013 - 31 December 2014, as well as an approximate breakdown of expenses. The statements we receive from the SPI are not in the most usable format [3], and we hope to provide more accurate accounting in the future. Note that this statement does not reflect 2014 GSoC income, as that had not posted as of 31 December 2014. Thus the fact that we are in the black this year is entirely due to your generous donations. Thank you all so much!
