Though online payment described above is preferred, we also accept physical checks. Please make the check payable to “Internet Archive” and send it to the below address. Please do not mail cash.

San Francisco, CA 94118

In order to ensure you receive an acknowledgment of your gift as quickly as possible, please include an email address with your mailed donation.

Our preference is for checks in U.S. dollars, drawn on U.S. bank accounts. Checks in currencies other than U.S. dollars, or from bank accounts outside the U.S., can be very expensive for us to process, which reduces the value of your gift. If you do not have a U.S. bank account, you can maximize the value of your donation by giving via PayPal or wire transfer.
