request to add new section for non-US donations

== From outside the US ==

The note about wire transfers is hidden inside the "Mail us a check" section. It would be nice to make it more prominent by moving it to a new section titled "From outside the US". The text could read:
 +
 +
Donations from banks outside of the US or not in US dollars should be handled by wire. Donors wishing to send a wire should contact <conservancy@softwarefreedom.org>.
 +

You might want to team up with other donors to save international banking fees. Feel free to post to [[Mailing_Lists#General_Lists|iaep]]. If you're inside the EU you may contact [[User:Sascha_silbe|Sascha Silbe]].

I would like to propose that Sugar Labs reconsiders adding a membership structure for donors. It appears this was already discussed in the oversight board meeting that took place 2008/09/19, as indicated in the meeting minutes excerpt:"We also discussed the idea of members dues, but reached consensus that it wasn't a good idea at this stage." (http://sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_Labs/OversightBoard/Meeting_Minutes-2008-09-19)

== Donating hardware ==
 +
 +
If you donate hardware to Sugar Labs and give us a full inventory that you donate, we will send a letter back that acknowledges the in-kind donation. As far as the value of the donation and how much you can you use as a tax deduction, that's up to the donor to discuss with their accountant, using the acknowledgment of the in-kind donation. In other words, the recipient 501(c)(3) organization doesn't get
 +
involved with what the financial value is, it merely acknowledges for the donor that the physical items have been received as an in-kind donation on a particular date.  The rest is for the donor and their
 +
accountants to figure out.
