Benetech likes to respond to customer demand, and this sometimes is surprising. We've never had the ability to donate to Benetech or its programs as a link on our website. Lately, this has come up from people who have been looking for that link and unable to find it, especially for Bookshare.org, where a specific donation can be linked to a tangible benefit, such as the purchase and scanning of a book for people with disabilities.

We looked at this, and have chosen to partner with Groundspring.org, an organization with common values and methods to Benetech, to implement this functionality on Bookshare.org. They do a good job of delivering both the security we require and the Bookshare.org look we desire. If it works out well, we'll expand it to our other projects and Benetech itself. If you make a donation, let me know how it went. Customer feedback is critical!
