How would this work for one-time contributions, or for sponsors that 
stop contributing? For instance, if an entity gives a $60,000 one-time 
unrestricted contribution (unlikely, but who knows?) would they be 
listed as sponsors for 24 months after the contribution and then have 
their name removed?

Also, the implementation should explicitly mention a mechanism to keep 
track of received contributions.
