We've switched to Zeffy for donation payments because they give us 100% of the money you donate.  We think Zeffy is a better choice.

Click here to make a donation with Zeffy.  Zeffy uses a tip-like voluntary contribution system to fund its operation.  When you make a donation through Zeffy, they'll ask if you want "add a contribution to keep the platform we use 100% free."  This is completely optional.  We still get 100% of your donation no matter what.  Zeffy supports donation payments by credit card and ACH bank account withdrawals.

You can also mail us a check.

Or, support us through Employer Matching Gifts

Many major employers offer a matching gifts program which will match all or part of an employee's charitable donations, up to a set dollar amount, on a one-time or recurring basis.  As a 501c(3), the Richmond Amateur Telecommunications Society is eligible to receive donations and matching gifts through many of these programs.  The donation process typically needs to start with your employer or their designated system in order to be eligible for match.  Check with your employer for availability, terms, and conditions prior to making your donation directly with us.

Donations of Radios, Computers, Parts and other Used Equipment

At this time, RATS is not accepting donations of radios, computers, parts, and other used equipment.  Unfortunately, we do not have the manpower to sort through, price, and sell this type of stuff, and we're already sitting on a storage unit with a bunch of radios and other stuff that has been donated over the last few years.  Other clubs in our area may be interested.
