The first quarter 2005 fund drive was held from Friday 18 February to Tuesday 1 March 2005 (2005.02.18 – 2005.03.01). The goal was to raise US$75,000 (Yahoo! Currency Converter) to meet income requirements in the first quarter 2005 budget. This goal was met and then exceeded by 26% well before the originally-scheduled end date of the drive (Friday 11 March 2005). Therefore the drive was cut short by 9 days (official end: 11:59 PM Monday 28 February 2005; eastern US timezone since PayPal data are not available in UTC).
