It would be interesting to see if anyone works at a company that would
donate to OSS with *no strings attached*.

I checked with mine, and they don't do it at all, but some do and take a
tax deduction.

PovRay would be a good project to suggest if you know a place which does
this.

Just an idea...

Ian

As far as I'm aware, Povray is not considered a tax-exempt organization in the
USA for tax purposes. Maybe it is in other countries?
