6## Donating money
8You 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 35Some tips on sending donated equipment through the mail: Mailing materials out of
36the country usually requires some sort of customs declaration. State clearly
37on any customs form that the equipment is used, is a gift to an individual and
38not a business, and the value of the equipment (usually less than $50 USD).
39Adding www.dragonflybsd.org as a reference can also help, as this provides
bfb8b967 40additional information for a curious customs officDonationser. It also may help to
7f094b55 41repeat that information in a letter inside the packaging, in case it is opened
42or damaged.
