Is there a formal process for suggesting things for the foundation to do? Like things that I cannot do myself, and I am not requesting money for but believe that the foundation would benefit form engaging in.
ZIPs are Zcash ecosystem-wide proposals, not tied to any organization. They are moreso focused on developmental and process improvements. For outreach suggestions, I think the forum is a great place to post something. I would suggest formalizing your proposal with clear problem, objective and solution sections and then sharing with the foundation (or whoever you want to consider looking into it).
