    7 If you donate to these non-profits and earmark your donation to be reserved for madwifi.org, they will then move your donation to a separate account and keep it there until we request a "disbursement". This approach enables us to receive (in many cases tax-deductible) donations from our users, without the project itself being incorporated as non-profit. It saves us a lot of administrative work and allows us to concentrate on improving our software.

    75 Do you or your company have any idle machines or spare equipment (hard drives, SCSI controllers, network cards, etc) lying around? Are you a WLAN vendor with Atheros-based products in your portfolio, looking to improve your public profile? Then please consider a hardware donation to the project. These would be particularly useful for realizing our long-standing plans of a "testbed installation" (a.k.a "madwifi.org labs") and would greatly enhance your efforts to attract interest from the linux community.
