Great idea! I would like to see this as well, and you are correct that The
C++ Alliance has a broader scope. It is within C++ Alliance mission to
sponsor the creation of such an organization so if you are willing and
there are other volunteers (a minimum of three people are required, to fill
the positions of President, Treasurer, and Secretary) then I would be happy
to direct the resources of our non-profit to launch this new charity. As I
already have a full plate I can't be involved in the management of this new
non-profit but I am happy to help get it started and of course continue
contributing to Boost.

So there is no confusion: The C++ Alliance is offering a grant of $50,000
to start a new U.S.-based 501(c)(3) non-profit whose charter is narrowly
focused on supporting the Boost C++ Libraries.
