As far as the non-fiscal stuff goes, it all sounds fine. I am still not
clear on the structure of your money stuff. If money needs to be
granted/disbursed *by* noisebridge, at all, then we need to craft an
agreement. If you are using part of the grant money to pay noisebridge
dues or make compensatory donations *to* NB, via another financial
entity, then that isn't necessary.
