I'm no expert in the correct balancing of selection committees, but this seems acceptable to me. My one worry would be that the number of sponsor/donor organsations and the amount they contribute can vary. So if there are two organisations and they each give half the funding, they collectively are a third of the committee. And if there are 15 organizations that each give 1/15 of the funding, they collectively comprise almost the entire committee.

But perhaps that worry is reasonable in theory but not so much in practice -- maybe there's always a good sense about how many sponsoring organizations there are.
