How hard would it be to set up a new fund, aimed at marketing/lobbying for
Debian-related purposes? If it's not tax-exempt, how much would it cost,
the tax and maintenance overhead?

Theoretically, people could donate to this purpose, that is, interested
consultants, CD vendors, organizations that use Debian so much that they
can afford spending money on "fluid" expenses like this...

The money could be used for example to print mass amounts of business cards,
small flyers or pamphlets, ... small things, but good for name recognition.
