This is essentially what I suggested, but with a lower fee for the
sponsors. On reflection I think that something like $100, just above the
cost of 2 individual subscriptions would be fine. Anything over would be
covered by calling it a donation as Nick says.

It is important to recognise that sponsorship might not be the only
relationship we have with organisations. We could have all sorts of
relationship on a one-off basis with organisations that are not
sponsors, but only sponsors would have the right to nominate two people
to be members. In some cases, the organisation would not give us
anything other than access, advice or or other non-cash benefit to WMAU.
