I'm not sure if this was intentionally calling me out but I'll respond.
You're right that Apache isn't really about raising money for resources...
but Spoon can do just that.

We haven't gone too much into it but I can tell you, as I'm just getting
off another Spoon call as we get ready for a big 'post-adobe now apache'
Q&A session, that this is one of the big goals of Spoon.

Spoon is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation with the mission to "The Open
Spoon Foundation’s mission is to promote software development innovation
through improved community involvement and effective tooling."

We have full intentions to put on conferences, raise money, and support the
community. The conference can make money and as a non-profit use that money
to continue to support the community in a very open way. So... could
definitely pay for the normal conference things, work deals to help the
community for software, etc. If you want to join up you could help the
community in that way also.

That help?
