Facebook.

The GNOME Marketing Team has launched a Support GNOME Cause.  

Executive Director Stormy Peters is looking for both one-time donations and continuing donations of as little as $10/month to support development of the project.

The application was created by Project Agape and I have Roberto Galoppini to thank for getting word of this to me quickly.
