[Foundation-l] Fundraising update

I think the best approach is to keep the notice, and add individual 
localized information on the Deductability of Donations page, see DE and 
FR comments, for example. This will prevent any confusion that may arise 
about the law that applies to WMF in other countries.  I'm sorry if it 
is confusing, but the notice should be there.

I hope this helps!
