December 7, 2019 zCash community governance poll shows widespread support for Founder’s Reward continuance.

In November, the zCash community voted on a variety of proposals about the long-term funding structure for the network. The current Founder’s Reward allocates 20% of the block reward to a combination of the Electric Coin Company, the zCash Foundation, and early investors. The majority of the recent proposals called for the continuance of the 20% reward, though with varying allocations to specific groups and generally not including early investors. Though this poll is not binding, it does signal a likely future direction, with final implementation scheduled for late 2020.
