Hi Jonathan,

The best place for donations is the foundation's website:


If you do want to earmark it for something specific, please reach out
to the donate group on the contact page:


You could also try reaching out to James Vasile directly, and I'm sure
he'd be able to fill in any gaps.

Thanks for your willingness to contribute,
