The Computing Community Consortium “supports the computing research community in creating compelling research visions and the mechanisms to realize these visions” and steals copyrighted design layouts from A List Apart magazine.

The Computing Community Consortium is supported by National Science Foundation. Maybe if they steal enough layouts they can balance the budget.
