Well, depends on whether or not you need the 501(c)3 stamp.  Ours is
still pending but we expect to get it straightened out with the IRS in
the next couple of months.

You can send donations to the PostgreSQL Foundation now.   Donations to
the general fund, at this time, will be used primarily for advocacy
efforts (banners, CDs, propaganda and shipping) and web hosting.  See:
http://www.pgfound.org/donate/

Once we have our 501(c)3, we will engage in a specific fundraising
campaign with specific goals (new servers, targeted advertising, even
feature development).  For now, we're trying to limit our fundraising
just in case our pending status is protracted.
