It's awesome to see this many pointers!

If we can convince some of them to put redirects to their pointer on /.well-known/pay on their domains, then they could have some cool vanity pointers like $archive.org or $creativecommons.org

That would make it clearer who the site is supporting if you look at their payment pointer

Could we perhaps compose a simple 'how to' on webmonetization.org on doing this? Or even better still a blog post that we can point our NFP friends too.

A community member has written up a helpful article on this, actually! In terms of instructions it mainly covers Apache. We could consider adding a page on webmonetization.org that goes a little more rigorously through all the main tools that one would publish their site on, if we want more concrete instructions for sites to follow.

It'd be nice to see this kind of post more, especially if there's any recognizable charity organization like Red Cross setting up their payment pointer to public.

There's a lot of people collaborating over the internet not doing for money; so instead opting out from revenue sharing they can just put charity organizations' payment pointers on that. It's probably going to be the most accessible way to do things for fun and charity at the same time.

I've bookmarked this, by the way. Hope to see more organizations joining in. Thanks for posting this Erika!

You (and everyone else) can help too, @radhyr . If you know of a not-for-profit that is already experimenting with or keen to experiment with Web Monetization — feel free to connect them with any of the folks within the @grantfortheweb team, myself included...

Yes, will do! I'll keep that in mind if I see one in the future.

@cyberdees is this list open for additions? Are there any criteria (other than it being a recognised NFP?)

It's totally up for additions. @erikad regularly makes updates once anyone gives her the heads up.
