As someone with three years professional fundraising and one of a few who
do the large-gift fundraising for PostgreSQL here in the US, donated
corporate funds come out of a company's marketing department. As Mal
Warwick, head of the Bay Area's largest fundraising consulting firm says,
"Companies' charitible giving budgets are generally less than 1% of their
marketing budgets." Companies want to stick their names on things.
So, requiring cash donations to be anonymous would basically cut our
corporate gifts (70% of all money we get) by 99%.
