You're right, it should specify the currency. Noted.

Like Gerold already suggested too, this is a maximum contribution fee 
the NPO can request from it's members, and maximums are often high. I 
would not expect to see this maximum reached, ever, but from a legal 
point of view the NPO must have /a/ maximum. So you choose one that is 
not insanely high, but will also not limit you for many, many years to 
come. Money devaluates over time and given that the General Members 
Meeting must unanimously agree on raising or lowering this maximum, 
having to do so every 5, 10 or even 20 years would become a problem for 
any organization.

Thank you ;-)
