I'll look it up in a bit.

Even better, one was actually upgraded ;-)

I think EU is good for this, yes. There's a long tradition of this kind
of forms of associations, "clubs", "Vereine", etc., in many countries
and it shouldn't be much of a hassle.

More sophisticated organizations would even have certain tax benefits,
but that's additional work and takes time.

I don't know how easy or hard such things would be in the US. Probably
similar to EU.

No, not at all. Argentina is where I am, so that's where I could
try to set up an organization (assuming I'd need one to keep things
properly separated so that the tax authority doesn't get any wrong
ideas), but as I explained, this wouldn't really make sense.

Heh, I knew "NGO" sounded a bit pretentious and could convey some
incorrect ideas ;-) I guess anyone who's played that role in a
"club" of some form or shape should know enough of the basics.

By the way, I'm not suggesting that we need to set up any formal
organization. Depending on the country, associations can be formed
without any formal requirements, and may well be able to handle the
sort of transactions we need without further ado.
