Hi Florian and Thorsten,
Great page! My comments below:

I started to work on a new donation page, and Thorsten is currently
reviewing and enhancing it. It's really just a quick shot, but any
feedback is welcome:
The third paragraph, second sentence could be improved, it sounds a
"Our values are openness, transparency and meritocracy. Following these
ideals, ever since the beginning, we have made our budget as well as our
"Our values are openness, transparency and meritocracy. By using these
as our guiding principles, we have endeavoured in making our budgets as
well as our financial reports public."
Note: I am also unsure as to why there are so many linked .pdf
documents. Why are these not available on a web page instead of a file
download? The text in these files should be posted somewhere on our
website rather than asking visitors to make use of additional software
to inform themselves of our mission statement, core values etc.
"... registered, plus there's an ongoing demand for travel funding of
our members, and participation in events."
I would suggest avoiding contractions wherever possible; I would suggest
changing "there's" to "there is".
"You are more than welcome to directly contribute to LibreOffice, or to
donate to the budget of our ongoing operations."
"You are more than welcome to contribute directly to LibreOffice, or to

"LibreOffice is a large project, involving thousands of volunteers
spread across the world, working round the clock with a huge code base.
A project of this magnitude is always in need of money. Your donation,
however small, would help our project."
"LibreOffice is a large project involving thousands of volunteers spread
across the world who work round the clock with a huge code base. A
project of this magnitude is always in need of money for infrastructure,
brand protection and community support such as events and travel
subsidies. Your donation, however small, would greatly help our project
and help us deliver a better product as well as services."
The plan is to have exact donation items here (we need € 123 for XYZ
servers, € 456 for XYZ developer machines etc.), plus give detailed
links to the budget, but that all is work in progress.
That is great! Does this mean that some users could donate towards a
specific budget item?
