Thanks!  The GSoC application requires an IRS W8-BEN tax form from
the organization.  Should we fill out part of that, then send it
to you for a signature or whatever needs to be done?  Or do you
have "ready-made" forms filled out, since there are a number of
GNU projects that will be applying to GSoC?

I'm fine with the money going to the FSF, especially since this is
a rather late application.
