Project Gutenberg-tm depends upon and cannot survive without wide spread public support and
donations to carry out its mission of increasing the number of public domain and licensed works that
can be freely distributed in machine readable form accessible by the widest array of equipment
including outdated equipment. Many small donations ($1 to $5,000) are particularly important to
maintaining tax exempt status with the IRS.

The Foundation is committed to complying with the laws regulating charities and charitable donations
in all 50 states of the United States. Compliance requirements are not uniform and it takes a
considerable effort, much paperwork and many fees to meet and keep up with these requirements. We
do not solicit donations in locations where we have not received written confirmation of compliance.
To SEND DONATIONS or determine the status of compliance for any particular state visit
www.gutenberg.org/donate

While we cannot and do not solicit contributions from states where we have not met the solicitation
requirements, we know of no prohibition against accepting unsolicited donations from donors in such
states who approach us with offers to donate.

International donations are gratefully accepted, but we cannot make any statements concerning tax
treatment of donations received from outside the United States. U.S. laws alone swamp our small
staff.

Please check the Project Gutenberg Web pages for current donation methods and addresses.
Donations are accepted in a number of other ways including checks, online payments and credit card
donations. To donate, please visit: www.gutenberg.org/donate
