We accept donations by cash deposit, EFT, Zapper, and Paypal. EFT (electronic fund transfer) is the best for us as we receive your full donation. Zapper deducts a small percentage, and the cash deposit fee is very high, so EFT is the preferred donation method. Paypal is best for our overseas supporters as you can donate in your own currency.
