Yes.    You can make out a check to "Software in the Public Interest / 
Attention: PostgreSQL Fund".   http://www.spi-inc.org/donations  Money 
will be used for: infrastructure costs, promotion materials, legal fees 
and/or developer sponsorships, and governance over these funds is 
currently being organized (you're likely to become a member just by 
virture of donating).  We are not able to accept designated gifts at this 
time.

We'll have a Donor Page up RSN.

Note that this is for the US and Canada only.   Donors in France, Japan and 
Australia have local PostgreSQL organizations; donors elsewhere need to 
set one up!
