I just happened across what seems to be a pretty cool project for micro-funding: GitTip. There is a community for Drupallers https://www.gittip.com/for/drupal/ but they require at least 150 members before they will show the members of the community. Drupal had 20 community members this morning and is now up to 30 which is great as percent growth, but pretty small overall.
I encourage folks to sign in there (uses twitter or facebook or github Oauth).
GitTip advertises themselves as Distributed Genius Grants which is a pretty fun idea. It's also possible for organizations to sign up as donors which helps get notoriety for their organization by being one of the biggest contributor within a community (e.g. MaxCDN is the biggest contributor inside PHP community right now).
