Setting up a 501(c)(3) foundation is a morass of paperwork. If people
within the US are interested in writing tax deductible cheques, a far
less onerous thing to do would be to look at the Software Freedom
Conservancy (http://conservancy.softwarefreedom.org/). This offers many
advantages not available to a small group, not least protection from
personal liability for individual volunteer contributors.
I've worked before with the lawyers and administrators at the SFC and
its parent organisation, the Software Freedom Law Center, and they are
wonderful, motivated people.
