What if we have a rotating list we divy stuff out to?

E.g., for this FUDcon we'll make a donation to the GNOME foundation.
For this other event we'll donate to the Libre Graphics Meeting fund. 

We could also donate to events like GUADEC and the plumbers' conference
and maybe could get a sponsor logo placement for those events?
