I see several possibilities:

1. Free hosting. I think that an educational instution (e.g.
University) might accept hosting Wikilivres under some conditions
(legal responsibility from a Wikimedia chapter?).

2. Financial support only. I could continue to have the legal
responsibility of the project. I have a Paypal account to receive

3. A chapter or another organisation takes over the legal and
financial responsibility.

My main criteria is the long term support for the project.
