It should be possible to do this via an addition to the header or
footer.  A prominent place would be the upper right, maybe where we
currently have the Incubator logo.

But I'd recommend raising the idea with V.P., Fundraising.   My
impression was the ASF is more geared to receiving larger
contributions.  Although receiving 10,000 donations of 10 euros would
be significant, I imagine it would increase bookkeeping work, and I
wouldn't want to flood anyone unless they were prepared for this.

So maybe a note to Fundraising@ is in order?
