for the next two/three months.

- Planned a grant for onion services.
- Planned a research grant with Roger.
- Copy-edited various things for different people.
- Researched how foundations evaluate grants to try and write better
monitoring-and-evaluation sections.
- Started to research more sources of funding in places that aren't
North America.

As a reminder, you can use https://pipeline.torproject.net to tell me

funded, but I can do some financial match-making to find foundations
that like to support different sorts of work.

- Worked with Steph to publish two more volunteer spotlights:
- Worked with Shari, Steph, Alison, and Jon to wrap up our end-of-year
crowdfunding campaign, which (thanks to Mozilla's generous match)
brought in $420,522.84. How about them onions!
- Worked with Shari and Steph to publish our 2017 year-in-review:
- Continued getting my pilot's license as part of my plan to fly to the
autumn Tor meeting.
