Since Wireshark is now sponsored by Riverbed, is there still a way to contribute financially to the Wireshark foundation?

Is there an official program detailing the different costs, the participation of Riverbed, the use of donations, etc...?

Also network consultants, has someone already included a line of donation for Wireshark in it's invoice to the final customer who has been successfully troubleshooted?

I don't think there is something like that, at least not financially. What many of us do is contribute non-financially by

  1. answering Q&A questions
  2. contributing to Wireshark code and create other free tools
  3. attending, presenting at, and otherwise helping with the various Sharkfest conferences
  4. writing blog posts, tweets, etc.

Maybe Gerald has some more info on the donation opportunities:-)
