I am the president of Nashville 2600, which believe it or not, is a 
registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charity.  Yeah, most people double take 
when hearing about a charitable non-profit hacker group.  We use 
clickandpledge.com instead of PayPal because of the negative issues 
associated with them, and fortunately the fees that clickandpledge.com 
charges are much less than banks.  Just tossing out another alternative 
that is non-profit friendly.
