Maybe this has been covered before.

I wish SETI would make donations PayPal friendly. Just like many stores on-line. It's pretty quick and painless. I don't have to use a "Credit Card" and I don't carry check cards. I have to use my credit card to make a donation and I don't want to use "credit" for donating.

SETI has tried to do this, but because they are part of a large school there are many issues with it. So the school has said it won't be allowed.

I wonder if you could purchase a prepaid card and use that to make your donation

As Skilldude mentions

PrePaid Visa Gift Cards directly from Visa with a link to find a Bank or other participating organization.

It was noted by Matt in the Tech News Precedence Bulk (Dec 10 2009)
So the first round of donation pleas are being sent. Sending out mass-mails is an art and a science, none of which I claim to be good at. I'm sure lots of these mails are being spam blocked or whatever, but we can only do so much to given our resources to get the word out. One good piece of news is that paypal donations may actually be a possibility in the very near future. Imagine that.
