It is my understanding that OSGeo isn't a non-profit 501c3, but instead is a 501c4, which means its contributions are generally not deductible. That status wasn't settled when MetaCRS was formed. PROJ itself had never incubated into OSGeo, and PROJ has never had governance beyond a benevolent dictator (Frank).
