Ways to donate to the FSF
- Online, using a credit or debit card. Prepaid should work too.
- If you use a credit card, sign up for the Free Software Foundation Visa Platinum Rewards Card and support the FSF with every purchase. There's a $50 donation to the FSF by the bank when you first use the card, plus ongoing contributions of 30 basis points or .3% of retail transactions. US residents only. Read more details about the card.

- By wire transfer in both dollars (and all currencies converted to dollars) and euros. Please contact us at email@example.com for the account information.
- Through the United Way.
- Through share stock donations, and we also encourage supporters to add the FSF to their estate plan. You can get further details by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Additionally, there are a number of other ways you can benefit the FSF financially:
- By donating your frequent-flyer miles to the FSF. To do so, please e-mail us at email@example.com to let us know how many miles you would like to donate, and for which airline. (Please note that these donations are not tax-deductible in the US.)
- By encouraging your employer to become an FSF corporate patron.
- By listing any relevant job openings on the Free Software Jobs page.
- By donating your car to the FSF.
- By selling your item via eBay Giving Works. You can list your item on eBay and donate the percentage of your eBay auction to support the FSF.
- Through AmazonSmile purchases: As an independent small publisher, the FSF discourages people from shopping at Amazon (plus, Amazon supports DRM). But if you shop there anyway, you can designate the FSF as your chosen charity on smile.amazon.com. We will then receive a small percentage of whatever you pay there.
