When I read this, the first thing I thought was "Future of Music  


Not that they would necessarily support the project directly, but an  
appeal on their mailing list might be worth a shot, or they might be  
able to put you in touch with some of their sponsors.

They are more a policy-level org, but I would think the people  
involved there would be interested in what you're doing here.

Just my 2 cents.
