On the link, there's this:


10. Are donations tax-deductible?

I'm not a tax lawyer, but my basic understanding is as follows:
I'm not a charity, so you can't claim these donations as a charitable  
Legally speaking, this is contract work, so companies can claim any  
donations they make as business expenses. I will issue invoices upon  

Is there not a facility within FreeBSD where people can donate to a  
specific sponsorship/whatever through a proxy non-profit so that  
donations are charitable?
