I know the topic about local NGOs is still to be discussed, but since the German situation is a bit different to other countries, I would like to raise this specific topic now, after a discussion with the German association's board.

As you are all aware, the German association currently acts as interim legal entity for TDF. Due to that, *all* donations that normally have been donated to the German association, were donated to the TDF account. In a nutshell: In the last three months, the German association did not receive *any* donation, at least not via PayPal (and if any donation via bank account, then only a small amount). However, still it does a lot that is not paid by the TDF account, so I would like to propose the following:

I would like to add a donate button to the German (and only to these) download, extensions and template website. Donations done by these buttons will *not* go to TDF, but rather to the German association directly.

This should at least be an interim solution until we worked out a concept for local NGOs.

What do you think?
