I was thinking more generally if a fund is set up (as part of Phoenix Rising?) as a non-profit. I have donated to Phoenix Rising before but it would put me off donating if that was what money was going to be used for. I thought the competition might only be for non-profits - if other ways to spend the money can be raised, that's interesting. The US is probably a bit different to other developed countries where governments generally provide pretty good social security safety nets.
