As I am of the opinion that there is a causal relation, and as I am equally

opinion that this is not nice. Well, it only proves that it is not a zero
sum game. I hope we will get enough money to cover the budget if not their
will necessarily be cuts.
The budget wasn't met last time either, was it? Looking back it seems
like less than half the budget was raised during the entire fiscal
year, and the foundation only spent about half of that ($1.4 million
raised, only 0.7 million in expenses).
These supposed budgets look completely unrealistic to me. I assumed
that was intentional. Ask for way more than you need, and then settle
for half that. It's a common strategy.
