Coding Bounties and Escrow Services

I'm wanting to organize several coding bounties to get several ports on FreeBSD updated (such as Java) yet the only bounty site I've found is Pledgie, which forces you to choose who it is going to before you begin collecting donations. That's all well and fine when a project has a defined maintainer, but something like a coding bounty, it's not so good. Does anyone out on /. use an escrow service for this purpose? If not, how do you collect
