Use of term "Donate" for Occupy Portland

Sorry about the slow reply. I recall something about this being discussed on the OP mailing list (I think you brought it up), but I don't remember how it was resolved, or if it was at all. I notice OccupyPortland.org still uses "Donate" as its wording so I am guessing they think it's ok? Not sure. Anyhow, IANAL but PortlandWiki is a separate entity from Occupy Portland so I doubt we could unintentionally get them into legal trouble with how we word links to their website; if that were the case then any 1%-owned website could put up a "Donate" link to them and get them into trouble with no action whatsoever on their part.

Either way, I don't think there's any problem with changing it to "contribute", if someone wants to do that.
