I do like this suggestion:

The idea here is address the concern that using the same level names
would confuse sponsors. By folding PyCon US and PSF sponsorships into a
single package, we could use the industry standard level names for those
packages, avoid confusion, attract more PSF sponsors and increase our
overall sponsorship levels.
So the idea is that a PSF Sponsor would also be a PyCon sponsor? When I
was at O'Reilly, that's exactly what I wanted. It was always confusing to
me that the PSF sponsorship was separate from the PyCon participation/

Yeah, I also think it would be a good way to simplify things. As far as I
know, the main blocker was finding someone with the time to work through
the logistical and financial details and present a concrete proposal to the
Board for consideration. (The last serious discussions on the topic were
before I joined the Board though, so I could be wrong on that front)

There's also an interesting question as to how such a model would interact
with the "International PyCon Prospectus" idea, since PyCon US anchors the
"Americas Bundle" in the draft proposal.

I like being consistent, however, will this cause confusion for
companies that are sponsors for both PyCon and PSF? There is already come
confusion over this when we send out invoices.

These two levels were never named and it would be good to do that and
to add
them to the web site.

RESOLVED, that the Python Software Foundation add sponsorship levels
$50,000 and $100,000 levels, and design an associated benefits
program for
those supporting the PSF.
Approved 9-0-0 by IRC vote, 1 November, 2013.
I believe the suggestion at the time was to move away from the current
naming scheme and over to the same naming scheme used for PyCon US
sponsorships (and many other organisations):

Diamond: $100,000/year
Platinum: $50,000/year
Gold: $20,000/year
Silver: $10,000/year
Bronze: $5,000/year
Standard: $2,000/year

There isn't anything specifically linked to the current
Benefactor/Principal/Patron naming scheme, so switching to the more
common Diamond/Platinum/et al naming makes sense to me.

There's an old page on the PSF wiki that included that and other idea:
