Donations to Apache (ASF)

This is the first time I contributed to the ASF (The Apache Software Foundation) via donations, financially – US$750. This is what I’d wanted to do for a long time.

Perhaps other people and so many companies in our country (Japan) can / want to donate and support the ASF, financially, because many people feel “thanx” to the continuous activities and great products created by the foundation. However, there seem less fully worked-out ideas for it. — I am still wondering how (tax deduction? listing up donator’s names?) to raise the funds from our country.
# E.g. In our country, people prefer to use “Remittion-by-BANK-Draft” rather than “CHECK” — normal business practice in Japan
