We're glad to accept donations by check. For those in countries in which
paper checks are no longer used (e.g. much of Europe) we can accept funds
by electronic transfer in some cases though this is somewhat labor-
intensive for us since we must transfer the funds by hand from one
account to another.
Many people find it convenient to donate by PayPal or by credit card;
one can donate using a credit card through PayPal and retain all normal
credit card consumer protections. If you dislike PayPal you should
certainly feel free to donate using whatever other method seems best
You can get all the details you need for any alternate method of
contribution by contacting <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Thanks very much for considering donating to NetBSD.
