Tobias, I'm certainly happy for OWASP to donate edgescans 2015 corporate membership funds and also Appsec 2015 silver sponsorship funds to a good cause like Nepal. I don't think such funds are ring-fenced in any way.

The funds we receive have been given to us for the sole purpose of the OWASP mission and it can create serious legal problems if we would attempt to re-purpose funds donated to OWASP for another task.

Maybe there is an open source team that can help with some ideas or code a project for the rebuild. Or in a couple of months when Nepal is rebuilding, we host an OWASP chapter event and send a speaker to help rebuild activity in the Nepal security communities. Open for ideas.
