In my experience, this is not the case (or doesn't need to be the case).
I've worked with GSoC for a number of years as a mentor for a small org,
and there are ways to make it work. For one thing, while it's true that
Google isn't going to accept GnuCash as an organization, there are many
organizations that act as "umbrella" organizations, handling the Google
point-of-contact and money handling for a number of small organizations.
Most of the GSoC organizations which get the largest number of students
are actually umbrellas. GnuCash, with one mentor, would be perfect to work
with an umbrella like that.
It may be too late to consider it this year, but for the future it might be
worth looking into.
