A good question. I did find a website at one stage where you could
donate directly to Ubuntu -

In my experience it's more rewarding to give back by donating time and
efforts in to local events and to buy the occasional shipment from
http://shop.canonical.com/ - I guess it depends on how much you have
to donate. For example I donated the printing costs of the posters and
business cards used at LCA to the team effort and I donated time in
organising it. I've purchased several shipments from the shop from
which proceeds go back into Ubuntu AND it then provides an outlet to
promote Ubuntu at my workplace (my Ubuntu mug is used at work) and
other places (I use my Ubuntu backpack regularly and helps start

It would be interesting to hear if anyone else has anything to suggest.
