Not quite..  What I'd advocate is that we try to buy things we need
first before asking for donations.  If we have money available that
isn't reserved or obligated for whatever then we should use it for
whatever we need.  If we don't have the funding available then we can
ask for donations.  I don't like the idea that we've got a bunch of
money, and keep getting more, but don't spend *and* continue to ask for
