    I suppose this is best done through PayPal. Is a credit card doable? Probably not?Report

      Yes – credit cards are accepted. Just click over to the sidebar and you’ll see the donate button. Click there and follow the steps. Bottom left corner you can use your credit card instead of paypal account.Report

        I tried that, and got a message saying please enter an amount greater than zero. I assume that referred to the portion of the page where you put in the amount you want to contribute, though the message was actually below that, in the portion where you put in credit card info. I had entered a dollar value, but I did it again, wondering if I would be charged twice, and got the same message.Report

          I’m sorry that’s very confusing. You have to hit “Update Total” beneath the dollar amount. So enter $XX.00 and hit “Update Total” and then hit “Continue” by the Credit Card info at the bottom.Report

    The timing of this is somewhat amusing, given that the local NPR affiliate is right in the middle of its pledge drive, too….Report
