Donations directed to endowment?

Post by criley » Wed Oct 10, 2012 8:45 am

Looking at the endowment page here ( is there a way to specify you want the donation to go to the endowment or the operating fund? I am sure that some people would prefer to donate to the endowment, while others to the operating fund. It would be nice to be able to specify. ;-)

PayPal doesn't allow us to have a blank message field in certain kinds of forms. If donating via PayPal, a person can email Alcor's accountant, Bonnie Magee (, and let her know how to handle the donation.

Donors sending in a check can just write a note in the memo field, and, those phoning in a credit card transaction can let Bonnie know directly.

The website will have separate pages about each type of fund (research, operations, endowment) with more details on the funds and directing donations soon.
