Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Also, the address must be in the USA. Thank you very much.fb

Update: I'm sorry, your right. I need the address for Ubuntu. I would like to donate by sending a check or pay with a credit card but, all I can find is how to use PayPal and I refuse to use PayPal. So, if there is an address for a check or where I can donate with a credit card I would appreciate that information. Thanks again.

It would be better if you say to who you want to donate... –  laurent Aug 6 '12 at 23:48

Also use a relevant phrase for the question and explain the problem you have with a little more detail. –  LnxSlck Aug 7 '12 at 0:25

I assume you want to donate to the Ubuntu project. Here are some ways for you to donate:

  1. Answer some questions on this web site you know something about.

  2. Ask some questions you are curious about and think others might be as well.

  3. Participate in the Ubuntu Forums at ubuntuforums.org.

  4. Participate in a nearby Ubuntu Local Users Group.

  5. Help test the next Ubuntu release when the beta releases come out and report bugs to Launchpad.net.

  6. If you know more than one language help with Ubuntu translations.

I'm sure there are more, but that's just a few. As you can see, we in the Ubuntu project are particularly greedy. It's not some mere money that we covet, it's your time, talent, and intelligence the project most wants and needs.

If you really want to drop some coin, however, you could buy a few blank CD's copy Ubuntu Live CD images to them, and give them to friends and acquaintances who might want to try it.

Canonical is the company that sponsors Ubuntu. It's the product of Canonical engineers as well as of the entire Ubuntu community, the Debian, Gnu, and Linux projects, and many other upstream projects and individuals.

Here's a USA address for Canonical:

Canonical USA Inc.
Suite 212 Lexington Corporate Center
10 Maguire Road
Lexington, MA 02421

John, thank you so much for your trouble! –  xxfireboy Aug 7 '12 at 3:57
    
I would recommend checking first to make sure donations are accepted there. Ubuntu is a community project, but Canonical is a for-profit business (with Ubuntu as one of a number of products). Even if you decide you do want to send money to that business, you should make sure they're willing to take it. –  Eliah Kagan Aug 7 '12 at 19:24
