The small print

All donations are processed securely via PayPal.

You don't need to be subscribed to PayPal to make a one-off donation and you can pay with a credit card or debit card if you wish. You will need to have, or create, an account with PayPal to setup a recurring donation.

We respect your personal privacy. Your identity will not be disclosed publicly without your consent. However, if you become a member of the foundation the membership list may be disclosed publicly.
