A relevant group are the institutional sponsors (companies, agencies and
so on). To better address the small donations I once started
which is based on ideas from Paolo Cavallini. Recently it has been picked
up again.

Several OSGeo projects have their own donation page (see above WIki
page) but for sure more could be done.
