it's usually through paypal which is secure. you don't have to worry about anything being out in the open. that's cool of you to support them even though it isn't necessary. beerchug.gif

If you are talking about websites and such, that have PayPal Donation "Jars"... Then you should be safe to donate money without giving out too much info, as long as it is PayPal...

I'd watch out for sites that ask for your credit card number though...

well, most donation sites have a paypal acount set up.
You register your credit/debit card with paypal (which is secure) and they transfer funds, serving as an intermediary party to protect your privacy
