(Constantly updated when possible)
Here is a list of (alleged) fund expenses and income that I put together  (needs updating)

It should be noted that some amounts are 'Fund received' and some are 'fund balance ' (no accountability for how much received and spent) at that time.

Most of the amounts were prior to Aug with many donations received after (eg Express).

Any amounts before August may already be included in fund received or balance.

Ultimately it is impossible to say how much they received but it is looking to be well over £2 million ...

Unable to include links to sources (space) but amounts taken from this thread, the FUND thread and Madeleine group articles.

MAY 07.........................May 20th .............£73,505.58 (The balance on the fund)

**When the running total was last showing on the website it was at 1.2 million before the £550000 settlement from DE, the Documentary donation or the Hello contract money. And the interest must have added up to a pretty penny. It must be close to 2 mill.

COMMENTS
"While I'm here, I thought I read somewhere these people had collected a total of over $ 6 million dollars. Can't remember exactly where I read this except to say it was on this forum. These figures just don't add up."
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"We have had a preliminary meeting with some producers and directors from IMG with a view to discussing an idea for a film. We've not agreed anything, we're not about to sign anything," Mitchell said. "We like the proposal, we thought it was fair, but there are others."
The board of Madeleine's Fund is due to meet this week and will discuss the proposal. Mitchell said the film may have a "cinema feel", and would be key part of replenishing Madeleine's Fund.

"If in theory a large film were to be made our lawyers would make sure our commercial interests are protected," he said. "Madeleine's Fund is just over £1m. The money is going on investigators and advertising. It's dwindling. The money is going. I would imagine we've got a few months left. It's not going to last the year unless we get more money in."

On the 9th January 2008, two of the existing directors of the Board of Madeleines Fund- Leaving No Stone Unturned, resigned.

˜There was a scheduled board meeting of Madeleines Fund today. We have reached a new longer- term phase in the search for Madeleine and we have reviewed how effective our Fund has been in pursuing its objectives. We agreed to continue our funding of the investigation to find Madeleine and we have decided to look at further media opportunities to support our search. To that end, we have invited two new directors to replace the two who stepped down, for business and personal reasons, We, together with Kate and Gerry McCann, extend our thanks to Esther and Phillip for their hard work and continuing support. We welcome Edward Smethurst and Jon Corner to the board to lend their expertise in commercial law and media.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There's even talk of a book or film. According to Mitchell in the Daily Express the Madeleine Fund is in need of cash.

We need money to search for Madeleine and that is the most important thing. Nothing has been decided yet. A film would be made on a percentage basis, with part of the profits going to the fund. None of the money would go to Kate and Gerry. They are not trying in any way to profit out of her name
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
in one 24horas report the other day mitchell is quoted as saying they havent paid them 50k a month since summer 2007!!!


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nov 07 Unlike their previous mouth, Justine McGuiness who was lawfully paid from the private company, Mitchell is being pretty coy about exactly who is signing his pay cheques.
I wonder why the cash is not coming from the Find Madeleine Fund. According to the fund's objects, I can't see any reason why. His role is exactly the same as that of McGuiness'.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've just spent a quid at Companies House.

Yes, you've guessed it the details of the Madeleine Fund- or to be more precise " Madeleine Fund: Leaving No Stone Unturned Limited." Number 06248215-are available.
The Company is Registered at the Offices of BWB Secretarial Limited 2-6 Cannon St London. There are three directors. Apart from John McCann who gives a Glasgow address, the others are Dr. Peter John Benedict Hubner MB FRCP DC and Douglas Skehan- a consultant cardiologist at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.

An unnamed director resigned on 31st May 2007. And for those interested, the first accounts will be filed by 15th March 2009.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


June 19 07 - A couple of days ago I read the bringmadeleinehome website. G McCann writes this:

"Kate and I dropped Jon at the airport this morning and picked up some more friends/family who have come out to see us, but particularly the twins. They were certainly happy to see our visitors!"

And I bet those friends and family are unlikely to have to dip into their wallets to pay for their accommodation. The fund clearly allows payment of this kind to be made.
I'm grateful to George S for pointing out that the running total of the fund seems no longer to appear on the website. Perhaps when the total reaches £1,000,000. it will be just too embarrassing.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The fund also ruled that it would not help to pay the couple’s legal bills.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The full objects of the Find Madeleine fund are:
1.1.1 To secure the safe return to her family of Madeleine McCann who was abducted in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on Thursday May 3, 2007;
1.1.2 To procure that Madeleine’s abduction is thoroughly investigated and that her abductors, as well as those who played or play any part in assisting them, are identified and brought to justice;
1.1.3 To provide support, including financial assistance, to Madeleine’s family.
1.2 If the above objects are fulfilled then the objects of the foundation shall be to pursue such purposes in similar cases arising in the United Kingdom, Portugal or elsewhere

17/09/2007

Two millionaire businessmen who gave money to help find Madeleine McCann refused today to contribute to the legal fight to clear her parents' name

One entrepreneur, who refused to be named because of the delicate nature of the case, has given his backing in the past.

But today he told the Evening Standard: "I am not going to contribute any more. It is a difficult issue and it is not something I propose to get engaged in.

"It is the most confusing scenario anybody has ever seen. I am not judge and jury and I hope what I am reading is wrong. I have not yet been approached [a second time] but I wouldn't put any money in.

"If they can turn the tide in some form maybe there will be loads of backers. But right now this does not look a good place to go."

A number of well known figures have publicly supported the McCanns including JK Rowling, Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson, Topshop owner Philip Green and EasyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.

A second wealthy businessman, who has given £100,000 to the fund, said: "We won't be pledging any more right now.

"I don't think that at the moment we would allow the money to be swapped to cover defence costs, but this is a difficult position and a very sensitive issue." The McCanns, from Rothley in Leicestershire, returned to the UK on Sunday, 48 hours after being declared suspects by Portuguese police.

WHO WITHDREW?
