That's the direction I was going in PEP 426/459:

The two missing pieces I now see would be recommended tags for
"Participate" and "Funding" URLs.

I'd favour "Participate" over any variant of "Contribute", as without
context, "Contribute" makes me think of financial support in the
crowdfunding/tip jar sense.

"Funding" is general enough to be suitable for crowdfunding/tip jar
links, freelancing/contracting links, and links to employer/sponsor
open source info pages.
