I'm glad you guys are doing something about financial transparency. Might even push more donations to be made.

"Thanks are also in order to those who have supported the foundation through smile.amazon.com. Your purchases have brought over $288" That is interesting, that means that dlang users spent ~57,600.0 bucks on Amazon recently. And that's probably only a minority as people don't necessarily remembers that smile.amazon thing.

That's not recent. It's the total they've paid out since the foundation has been part of the program. I'm not sure when Andrei signed up for it.

I have not found the foundation in on the German site smile.amazon.de. I guess because the D Language Foundation is not registered in Germany? Also just for me it's not worth the hassle, I generate only ~5 Euros in a year (tops). But maybe there is an EU-wide option? I'm clueless about the whole subject.

I guarantee I spent at least $1000 on Amazon in 2019, and I've ordered a lot of stuff off there that I wouldn't normally, given the quarantine. I don't usually buy from amazon.com as I'm not in the US, but I did set mine to donate to the DLF when I do.

 D Language Foundation finance updates
Please note that the bit here saying to search a third party website is insufficient, IRS regulations state that the foundation must provide the address on the world wide web and that there must be no fee to download the document from them or from the third party hosting the website. A direct link to the third party web page offering the PDF I believe would be in compliance, but indirect search pages are not and any link with a paywall is most definitely not. You also need to make sure the most up-to-date information is available and exact images of the actual documents submitted to the IRS, so while adding other information and reformatting in HTML would definitely be appreciated, you also need to provide the original documents to be in compliance with the law. The grantspace thing only offers 2016 and 2017. Really, the best thing to do is probably offering the documents directly on the official website. Then if someone does formally request it you can just point back to dlang.org/foundation or whatever.
