Alternatives to donating on


In August our website was hacked, resulting in warnings to potential visitors that the site is unsafe. The site was deep-cleaned and a preventative security service called Wordfence was installed to block attacks and visits from "bad actor" IP addresses in real time. Although the site is now cleaned and secure, some of the website security rating services (namely Mimecast and McAfee) have not reviewed and updated our status, and those services have poor or non-existent mechanisms for submitting our website for review and removal from their blacklists. This has resulted in lingering and sporadic security warnings that raise valid concerns.

Alternative ways to offset/donate to COTAP

Ensuring your donation is used as intended

When using the options below, our default treatment of a donation is offsetting to all active projects. Per our Terms of Use, this assumes we receive either a donor name or an explicit offsetting designation. You can forward your email receipt to donate [at] cotap [dot] org to confirm your donation intention as offsetting, to designate a specific project, or to let us know that you'd like 100% of your donation to go towards COTAP's operations and expansion.

Please inform COTAP if you see a security warning

Email us at security [at] cotap [dot] org with as much information as possible, including the browser you're using as well as screenshot(s).
