The Blender Foundation shares how they'll be using the Blender Development Fund donations in 2019. (Hint: they're getting really close to 25k/month now, which is their first goal. Are you a supporter yet?)
The development fund has had a big boost in the past months. Recurring donations are steadily climbing up to EUR 25k per month, which makes it possible to keep supporting the core developer team and to look into starting new projects.
