If you choose to charge your card "now", we will charge your card immediately. If you choose "when needed",
we will only charge your card once we need the money. This could be today or it could be in six months. The
idea is that you're pledging the donation now, but we won't actually take it until we need it. In either
case, we will send you an e-mail to notify you that your card has been charged.
Where are my card details going?
Your card details (without e-mail) are sent to a credit card processing company that we have an account with. There, your card details will be stored, in
one form or another, forever. Almost every major company (especially financial ones) operates this way, so there
aren't really alternatives to this reality if an organization wants to accept credit cards. You should assume
that anything else you've ever used your card at is being permanently stored in a similar manner. However, we
are automatically deleting data we've stored in our system on your transaction (email, donation amount, link to your card
at the credit card processor) every day if it's no longer needed. We need this data until your donation
has been charged, after which we try to clean up on our end as much as possible. But, as you can tell by now,
this is not a perfectly secure system and no matter what we do, we can't erase the link between your card
and our organization.
Ugh! Now you've made me paranoid! What can I do to stay private?
If you're using your personal debit/credit card, nothing can be done to make your transactions totally
private. However, you can use this form with a
Vanilla Prepaid Card
that you can buy with cash in many
places. If using a prepaid card, please select the option to charge your card "now" and be sure to first
login to your prepaid card account online after purchasing the card to set your "zip code" which you'll
need to fill out our form. Any valid 5-digit
U.S. zip code will work,
but it must be set on your prepaid card account first before you can use it here.

Do you accept Bitcoin?
No, but we're working on it.
Are there other ways to donate?

Protonmail account, your e-mail with us will be
