I like what pitivi did in their ‘Well defined plan’ portion (
http://fundraiser.pitivi.org/) where they gave $ amounts to each milestone.
So people have a good understanding what is being done with their money.
I like what synfig did/does (though very labor intensive) where they have

which promotes more Anonymity online can attract people who have interest

just my 2 centsOn Tue, Mar 4, 2014 at 3:33 PM, susan.spencer email@example.com:
I created a fundraiser for Valentina on OpenInitiative
(http://funding.openinitiative.com/). Hope that’s okay with everyone.
We should identify some goals and assign a funding amount for each. Goals

What does everyone think? The more suggestions the better.
