Canonical make pretty serious efforts, though I'm not sure if they do more
than RedHat. They do choose not to charge you for the distro or upgrades
which means all of their products are more easily available to you.
The Linux Foundation maybe?

I guess you could buy support for Ubuntu. It might even be useful some
time if you use Ubuntu.
You could join the Linux Foundation. Donations to projects can be useful
too. Those may seem a little less capitalist but when you buy something
you don't need/want, that's just a charitable donation really too.
