The Tor Project didn’t specify what it wants to do with any new funding. In general, the group uses donation funds for maintaining network scalability, improving user and relay support documentation, improving software usability, coming up with user incentives to maintain relays, and research.
As for hidden services, the Tor Project said in March it wanted to improve hidden service technology, create a user dashboard application for hidden service operators, and build a way to create hidden services that reduce server anonymity but still protect users with Tor encryption and anonymity.
