Inkscape will begin earmarking of donations for the Outreachy internship
program, with the goal of participating in one or more Outreachy slots.
Note that at this time it is assumed the cost of the Outreachy
participation will be covered entirely by the earmarked donations.
At the Boston hackfest Máirín Duffy suggested Inkscape participate in
the Outreachy internship program, and offered to help with organizing
and fundraising for it. We discussed it in detail at the board
meetings, but I don't think we formally voted on it. Conservancy
requires a formal vote for moving forward with collection of donations
One way Outreachy appears to differ from the GSoC program is that
funding must be arranged by the mentoring organization. Máirín believes
that adequate external funding can be secured for Inkscape, to cover at
least one student. With the Inkscape Committee's approval, Conservancy
will create a Donate button to receive and earmark funds to be used for
the Outreachy slot.
At this time it is assumed the cost of the Outreachy participation will
be covered entirely by the earmarked donations. If it becomes
desireable in the future for Inkscape to cover portions of the
internship cost, a separate vote will be done.

> Oh, I forgot to add in my last email, Máirín asked for us to set up an "account". To be clear, we are *not* setting up an "account" for this -- that's a term of art in accounting and it defintiely is not how we handle the situation when an existing Conservancy member project wants to fund an Outreachy internship.
> What we can set up is a donate button, which is what I've changed this ticket into an action item for.
> Since both Inkscape and Outreachy are Conservancy member projects, I believe it's ok to say publicly that the funds are meant for that, but please don't do that until I'm in possession of a a vote in the approvals queue where Inkscape Committee has voted to fund an Outreachy slot. Bryce, please take that as an action item and email to approvals creating a separate ticket.
> But, to be clear, the money will be officially earmarked for Inkscape, in their regular "Income:Donations" account, and the thing that will bind it to go to the Outreachy slot will be the vote by the Inkscape PLC to spend money on a slot.
> If you have further questions about what's appropriate to say during fundraising campaign,or other related issues to this, probably best to discuss in detail with Karen outside of any specific RT ticket.
