This is late, this should have been done a decade ago.
In 2002, X.Org was an industry consortium under the auspices of The Open Group, and XFree86 was producing the software all Linux & BSD distros used, and no one saw that changing. (I believe the XFree86 Project, Inc. was a private corporation, not a public charity as we've made X.Org.)

The X.Org Foundation has been funding events and student projects across not just the traditional X11 code base, but also DRI, Mesa, and Wayland. Given the years of work required to become a 501(c)(3) I hope everyone working on Wayland is happy to continue letting us deal with the bureaucracy and paperwork of running a foundation to support them so they can spend their time working on the code.
does xorg accept donations? looking at the website there seems to be no way to send a donation, closest is an email to contact if you want to provide sponsorship. I am sure if they had a simple way to donate, and the money sponsored xorg and other linux graphics projects, then they could get quite a lot of money.
