How You Can Support Our Mission
HacDC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law. The organization needs your support to defray operating expenses in order to fulfill its educational programs and community service.
We are a registered charity under the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)! Just designate Charity #32991 as a donee.
Donate two ways via PayPal
PayPal Option 1: Recurring Donation
We offer the ability to make monthly donations through the Friends of HacDC program. Unlike membership dues, these subscription donations can be tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law:
PayPal Option 2: One-time Donation
As an alternative to monthly donations, you can also donate any amount you wish. These donations can be tax-deductible as allowable by law:
Donate Via Dwolla
We like to receive donations via Dwolla because they charge lower fees (25¢ per transaction) than Paypal (2.2% + 30¢ per transaction), plus HacDC gets $10 in waived fees if you sign up for Dwolla using our referral link. Once you’re signed up there (a similar process as signing up to PayPal as it takes a few days to verify your bank details), you can click on the orange Dwolla button, above, or go to https://www.dwolla.com/hub/hacdc and donate. It’s not the choice for everyone, but it’s much appreciated for those who choose to!
Donate by US Mail
Donations by check can be made out to “HacDC,” with a memo declaring it as a “donation” or “gift”. They can be given to a board member or mailed to:
1525 Newton St NW
Washington DC 20010
HacDC accepts computer hardware donations and donations of electrical test equipment, electrical equipment of any function, and shop/hand/power tools. We also accept donations of bulk electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, transistors, micro-chips, wire, solder, etc.
HacDC members can provide donors with a tax-deductible receipt, which should include a mention of HacDC, an itemized list with value declarations, and (ideally) a signature.
