Donation campaign

Discussion on the progress of the donation campaign. The Mapbox announcement on matching donations didn't get as much attention as hoped and around €8,000 coming from non-Mapbox matched donations seem to be necessary to reach the €70,000 goal. The progress of the donation drive will be reassessed around the end of November, in order to decide the point at which the donation drive will close. Preferably, it will be done in time for announcing the results at the Annual Genenal Meeting (2016-12-10). During the discussion it was mentioned that Mapbox will upgrade to the Gold tier of the new Corporate Membership program, once their current membership period comes to end. Additionally, another company expressed interest in supporting OSMF with a Gold Corporate Membership. The name of the company was not mentioned, as the board is still at the initial stages of contact with the company about that issue - it will be disclosed in the future.
