Not exactly a foundation site but I like a lot the Plone main website.
It's clean and provides links to the main parts of the portal. It also
has place to dinamically change the bottom box witch is a nice feature
to display diferent groups of "cool things" about Plone. I'm not sure
what kind of information about OSGeo could be place here because it's
not evident you have to click on the titles to change the box

And like the mozilla site, at the end of the page several columns with
RSS items of different groups of info: news, events. ...
