How to Donate Directly

As a 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt organization, all donations are fully tax-deductable within the United States. You will receive a receipt for your donation. You may, if you wish, specify where you want your money to be spent and that request will be honored. For instance, you may earmark funds to only be used to upgrade the stats server, or only be used as prize money for future projects. Monies not specifically directed will be placed in the general fund and used at the discretion of the distributed.net organizers. Mail Donations to:

Distributed Computing Technologies, Inc. (DCTI)

PayPal allows you to send money instantly and securely to anyone with an email address. You can also send money requests to a friend or group of friends, who can then pay you quickly and easily online. Use PayPal to pay an "IOU", collect money for an event, or buy and sell items at online auctions. PayPal makes sending and collecting money as easy as email. PayPal is the largest web-based payment network in the world. It is the number-one payment service for online auctions, and the payment service of choice for online communities. You may sign up with PayPal and then use PayPal to donate any amount of money you wish directly to distributed.net. PayPal will retain 1.9% of the transaction amount as their fee for processing the donation since distributed.net's account is a business paypal account.
