There is one way, in my opinion, to do this without setting anything up 
special. Just instruct people to use the note or comment feature that 
PayPal provides as part of the payment process to stipulate that the 
amount they are paying over and above or instead of a subscription 
amount is intended by them for donation to the Venturists. Theyh should 
mention specifically The Society for venturism and not simply say 
something like, "Oh and the extra dollars are for donation".

Signature Memetic Virus--The worst enemy of those who now or will need medical 
care is the uninformed politician or moral fanatic who proscribe what doctors 
are allowed to prescribe and research, with the consent of their patients. Those
who understand this are strongly encouraged to modify this to fit their 
personality, and add this to their signature file, and organize to recover our 
freedom from Big Brother. For those who wait until they are sick, it will be too
late. Those who suffer from diseases which might have been cured by advanced 
medical research or schedule 1 drugs banned by Big Brother, have the right to 
hold accountable those who sat on their hands or worse, deferred their 
responsibility for personal and humanity's survival to unseen mystical agents, 
while they remained ill and dying.
