Far better than contribution money, is contributing code, discussion on
architecture, support to newcomers, testing, infrastructurq etc. which
eventually costs money indeed, but does not require the management of
funds etc. Only for very mature projects (OSDL, Apache, ...) a formal
structure may be needed, but at this time, the standard Free SW model
seems to work fine here.
