At present none because no such funding exists. Nor does any chapter
exist to do anything with it. Given the failure of the previous
chapter to complete setup distractions from the goal of setup are not
exactly welcome at this time.
I think you got the cart before the horse. Who's going to donate money to
someone who doesn't have any plans for what to do with it? How can you set
up a chapter when you don't have any idea what its purpose is?
Still if you insist:

Well, yeah, but finding ways to spend money that are going to attract
strangers to donate money is, at least it is to me!

I'm sorry, but that seems incredibly strange to me. It sounds like a Monty
Python skit. "Why do you want to form a chapter?" "Because that's the
way to protect funds." "Why do you need funds?" "Because if we
funds, the chapter wouldn't serve any purpose." "So what is the chapter
going to do?" "Not sure yet, we need to set up the chapter in order to
figure something out."
Good luck though, honestly. And I hope you don't take my last paragraph as
rude. I know I'm exaggerating what you've said in this thread, and taking
things a bit out of context.
