<font face="Trebuchet MS">Hi Michael,<br>
feel free to come up with proposal how to optimize donation
handling in a way that minimizes the sum of transactions costs,
banking fees and accountant fees and present it to the board. More
than 95% of the non-corporate donations come in via PayPal.
Therefore the topic has never become a top priority. However, if
we find someone who wants to work it out and put it into practise
the board will support this effort with the necessary
authorizations. Looking forward to your proposal!<br>

This is requested SINCE YEARS (!). But nothing has changed ever, with
the same arguments...
I still would request this, but I'v given up (disapointed) on this
issue. Unfortunately it seems to be like running against a wall one and
once again. But nobody is willing to build in a door. So everybody needs
to take a long detour for reaching his target. :-(
PS: as the foundation doesn't change anything, my sollution is: I
transfer the anual fee via SEPA in Euro (!) and not in GBP to the
foundation account (=> written 18,5€ and not 15GBP at the bank transfer
form), the rest is the problem of the foundation. It is sad if less
money arrives there than possible due to potential fees, but I currently
have the impression that I can't do anything against. :-(
