But does this provide the info everyone needed? It was easier for me to provide
 ;)
More than everyone needed I feel, but it does paint a clear picture. 
The main reason I was suggesting just posting the donations given in a lot more basic format(no names, just amounts received) was for both accountability and a bit of privacy for those who want to give anonymously while at the same time, wanting some assurance that their money was received.  That's the reason behind what I was suggesting. 
What you just did was show me more than enough that if most active members on this site just did 2 donations of 500php($10-12 usd) twice a year, it would be more than enough to cover all costs of the site.  If they want to do it in one payment, just 1000php($20-24 usd) should do the trick.  I find the site to be worth it, if not worth more.

By posting as donations are made during the year possibly it might be an incentive/reminder to members they can donate anytime. It also might eliminate just a few members having to make larger donations by having more members share the cost voluntarily.

Another benefit of doing that "sticky post/thread" on donations when they are made.
