Donate to the FSF via the United Way

by Free Software Foundation Contributions Published on Apr 13, 2015 05:52 PM
If you participate in a United Way campaign, please consider designating the Free Software Foundation as the recipient of your donation.

Just how do to this depends on where you live, because the United Way is not a single nationwide corporation but a loose alliance of separate local organizations with distinct bylaws and methods. Some United Way chapters list the FSF as an affiliated charitable organization, which is a pre-approved recipient of donations. Some will approve any 501(c)3 organization, which includes the FSF. Some have a narrow, explicit focus, but may be willing to consider including the FSF, if you ask. Some chapters use a form that prompts for an unlisted "other" recipient and others require more initiative from you.
