How to support Network Time Foundation and NTP project
Go to http://nwtime.org/membership/why-join/ to become a member of the Network Time Foundation or send a contribution to Network Time Foundation, PO Box 918, Talent, OR 97540. I'd recommend a statement indicating, "In support of NT Foundation's work, including move," to give the open source team the widest discretion over use of the funds. Stating specific, narrow purposes for a donation results in the need for audits that establish proof that the funds were spent as donor intended.

This is a fundamental issue which is'nt sexy enough for the Big Boys

Great introduction and description regarding the NTP.

Its unfortunate that same Mega-Corps can spend millions of Dollars on useless Political Lobbying every year can't find a few thousand to support such a vital piece of Internet Equipment.

How will it eventually get done?

When push comes to shove people eventually rally together and make it happen.

That's how it has always been and will continue to in Open source for the future as well.
