Subject: [yDNAhgI] I2a Haplogroup Project to handle donations for I2a/ I2*SNP search

Presently we are awaiting FTDNA's response to our request for a
"I2a/ I2* Special Fund" within the I2a website where donated funds
can be accumulated and later dispersed after Ken okays the SNP

yes, Ken asked that the I2a Haplogroup Project be used to
administer donations for the I2a/ I2* SNP Search.
I've handled donations for DNA projects before and am familiar
with "small" amounts. I've emailed FTDNA asking for a special
designation of "I2a/ I2* Special Fund" within the I2a website. There
are no other donations presently, so any future donations won't
have a problem of intermingling of funds, all will go to the SNP
search project.  FTDNA hasn't responded, I suppose they are
puzzling over exactly how the funds will be handled.  I told
Ken we shouldn't release the funds to FTDNA until after Ken
is satisfied with the SNP search results.  That way if the project
folds beforehand, donations can go back to everybody.
When FTDNA emails me, I'll post their remarks here.
