Freies Office Deutschland e.V.
it's the former OpenOffice e.V. that collect money for LibreOffice and  Donations have to be marked for LibreOffice or OpenOfffice,
if not the donation can be used for both as far as i know.
The Spanish project collects also money on their own

Maybe other language projects collect also money, i don't know and can't
read the sides
