PLUG welcomes donations for the same reasons as becoming a Member: to support its activities! As a registered non-profit association you can be assured any financial donations stay within PLUG to benefit members and the community at large. One of the best ways to help is by donating your time to help or lead activities. We also need hardware from time to time depending on the projects being run.
