FSF sounds like the best candidate to me; CC a distant second, since I
there's not a lot of good value in their licensing for software
purposes, although they've had good impact in other content areas, and
Fedora's primary mission is the advancement of free software.  I would
be circumspect about EFF and other groups that could reasonably be
considered more politically charged.
