This question already has an answer here:

Unless I am mistaken Jonas Meyer just became the first member to have offered bounties in excess of 10000 points.

Congrats and Thanks to a most generous benefactor!

In order to turn this into a question I'm also soliciting opinions on whether a related badge would be a good idea.

Update: Jonas Meyer is nowadays over 25k. Alexander Gruber and Vladimir Reshitnikov are the other members of the 10k club.

    $\begingroup$ A badge like Financier, Sponsor, Patron or, if we want to go into classics, Maecenas? $\endgroup$ – Jyrki Lahtonen Jul 17 '14 at 19:47

  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak It just occurred to me that instead of bumping this closed thread I should have posted my update in your chatroom dedicated to listing milestones achieved by users. What do you think about including this type celebrations there? May be you already have (sorry I lost the link to that chatroom, when my laptop crashed). $\endgroup$ – Jyrki Lahtonen Jan 13 '18 at 22:34

    $\begingroup$ @JyrkiLahtonen The room is here. (Actually, it is linked in several celebration-related posts here on meta.) Almost nobody posts there, so any kind of interesting stats related to this site is more than welcome - at least I won't just speak to myself there all the time. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Jan 13 '18 at 23:21

Thank you.

I am ambivalent on the badge idea. I am among those who already find sufficient motivation to offer bounties, and I don't know what positive or negative effects such a badge might have. Here is a related thread on meta.stackexchange.com:

Badge for bounties offered?
