I think Kickstarter is for funding a specific project, whereas we're looking more to fund travel and expense for developers continuously and/or a general purpose bounty type fund for recurring use.

It's good to keep in mind for the future if there's a need, but I don't think it fits this one.

Any others?  I've done a good bit of googling, and haven't come across anything in particular. 

BTW, what exactly is the status of the SFC membership?

I haven't followed this discussion closely, so it may or may not fit the purpose.

funds?  Just a simple collection/maintenance thing, is what I'm thinking of.

That might be the best route to go, for accountability as well as no
worry of "losing access" to it.

Start uncovering the many advantages of virtual appliances
