SPI definitely provides other online donation methods even before we're ready
to accept PayPal, primarily credit and debit cards globally as well as eCheck
for those in the US. SPI also provides wire transfer information to those who
want to donate that way.

Also, those who want to donate to SPI via PayPal can already do so indirectly
via Network for Good, although it's not as user-friendly as we'd want. This
method should still allow a designation for a specific SPI associated project,
and has the same tax benefits from the donor perspective because Network for
Good has the same tax status as SPI.
