That is already possible (although I'm not sure about the paypal part):
when donating to SPI via clickandpledge, one could choose to split his
donation in monthly batches.  Given I'm well aware this feature is
largely unknown (although some donors *do* use it), I encourage
proposing patches to http://www.debian.org/donations to better advertise

In various occasions we've also accepted local donations at booths. It's
trivial to do that for people who do not need a receipt, which is the
vast majority of individual "fan" donors. Just accept the cash and
donate it to Debian as part of the booth incomes.
