Ubuntu Foundation - Annual Report - Where?


I am trying to find the Ubuntu Foundation Annual Report. For most non-profits, they have a web site, and provide an annual report that shows what money came in, and what money went out. I know that in 2005 the Ubuntu Foundation was set up with $10M USD, but I have not seen where the money went, how much is left, and how much has been added.

Also, I cannot find the Ubuntu Foundation web site. Can anyone help me find the Ubuntu Foundation web site, and the Ubuntu Foundation Annual Report?

Therefore this foundation started in 1998. The inception is described as

"Two men of different race and generation - one South African, one American - are partners in a common cause. From a chance meeting in 1998 in New Brighton Township, South Africa, Banks Gwaxula and Jacob Lief came to realize that they shared more than a common interest in soccer. The two shared an abiding belief in the power of education."

Mark Shuttleworth is not listed on any of the Boards or executives. I cannot find software anywhere in the mission or annual statement. The first page of the Annual report discusses the Foundation's support of AIDS and education, and lists the founders as Jacob Lief and Malizole Gwaxula.

Are you sure that this is the Ubuntu Foundation that is supporting Ubuntu Software? If so, can you point me to a link or reference to software?

I have already done this, and have not received a reply. I admit, I made the request on Friday, so there has not been much time to reply. I will wait a few more days for a reply.

The site:

Code:
http://www.ubuntufund.org/
is titled: Ubuntu Education Fund

It is not the ubuntu. Ubuntu is supported by Canonical Ltd.

I have tried

Code:
http://www.canonical.com/search/node/annual+report
but no result.
