No it would not.  The first sentence is no longer true, see

  http://www.openbsdfoundation.org/contributors.html

So this would need a much larger fix.

Indeed, i see no evidence that this old text still exists anywhere.
At least

  locate README | xargs grep -F 'No major funding'

turns up nothing for me.

fair enough. my comment was about the grammar really, rather than the
content.

Much more minor, but "This is our 43nd release." should be "This is
our 43rd release."
Also,
"For further details, please visit https://OpenBSD.org/faq"
actually ends up being https://www.openbsd.org/faq/ with a slash at
the very end.

It is now known that that file is outdated in a number of respects.

However, it is not subject to version control, and consequently
normal developers cannot change it, so please be patient.
There is no need to report additional errors in that file.

I expect that it will get updated for the next release at the latest.

Yours,
