IGC would fit into this categories if the cover letter is descriptive enough

Largely true. But we still can get funding from business corporations
some of us are connected to. We may have to reach out on a personal
level to make the Donor company understand that the IGC is an
organization though not incorporated as a non-profit body.

Not necessarily. The Internet Governance Caucus is already an
organization by itself. What needs to be done, if it suits the IGC, is
to formalize the Caucus as a Civil Society Organization which may be
by registering the IGC as an International non-profit organization or
a Society. But does it suit the IGC to go through these steps?
