After 6 days, the fund drive appears to have taken $450,000 (not
counting the $1.9M of that was in the counter before the drive

Comparing that total to the way that previous drives have evolved, I'd
guesstimate that after 60 days the current drive will have generated
$2.9 +/- 0.9M in community donations, not counting any additional
major donor contributions that the WMF may arrange during that time.

Based on the figures in the annual report, $2.9M would appear to
exceed expectations for community giving (currently stated as $3M for
the current fiscal year, and assuming that at least $1M in community
giving occurs as donations during non-fundraiser months).
