Make a Donation to ARDC

Thank you for your interest in making a donation to ARDC! We prefer that individuals directly donate to nonprofits, clubs, and universities who do excellent work to promote amateur radio and digital communications. However, if you prefer to donate to ARDC, your gift will support grants and gifts for amateur radio and digital communications, and provide for the maintenance of 44Net.

At this time, ARDC primarily accepts unrestricted donations. This means that donations support our programs generally, rather than a specific scholarship or research project, for example. 

If you have questions about our gift policy and what can be accommodated, contact us. If you’re interesting in including ARDC in your estate planning, please see the information below.

To make a donation via check or wire transfer, contact or +1-858-477-9900.
