Aside from having 'donate buttons' elsewhere on the OSGeo website,
wiki, or other places such as on FOSS4G conference websites, you
might want to create a "Donate to OSGeo" page. It of course would
have the 'donate buttons' on it, but it could explain why people may
want to consider making a donation. It should also provide
alternative donation mechanisms, if people don't want to use PayPal.
In fact, if there are multiple alternative mechanisms, any
'donation buttons' or 'donate links' could link to the 'donations
page', especially if it become too cluttered to try and have multiple
denomination 'donate buttons' for multiple donation mechanisms.
