4available for donating time or goods to the project. However, developers can

8## Donating money
9
10You can use the donate-button to make a non-tax-deductible donation through PayPal. The money received will be used to fund future hardware acquisitions by the project, code bounties and/or contract development and potentially to defer other ongoing costs. Matthew Dillon maintains primary ownership of this account.

7f094b55 32Donors, please contact the requestor directly (and CC:
33donations at dragonflybsd.org). You and the donating/receiving party must
34independently resolve any delivery issues. The DragonFly BSD Project is
35not responsible for any transactions.

7f094b55 37Some tips on sending donated equipment through the mail: Mailing materials out of
38the country usually requires some sort of customs declaration. State clearly
39on any customs form that the equipment is used, is a gift to an individual and
40not a business, and the value of the equipment (usually less than $50 USD).
41Adding www.dragonflybsd.org as a reference can also help, as this provides
bfb8b967 42additional information for a curious customs officDonationser. It also may help to
7f094b55 43repeat that information in a letter inside the packaging, in case it is opened
44or damaged.
