The funds are generally intended to be used to:
- Support part/full-time maintainers: most core team members contribute in their spare time, and being able to focus on work would go well with less burnout and a sustainable future for the project as a whole.
When your target browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE) don't support certain features natively, it helps you compile it down to a supported version.
Babel abstracts the browser away so that you can worry about writing your application rather than trying to figure out what features are supported in each one.
