There are several organizations that are collecting donations for the defense of PFC Bradley Manning. The only organization that is contributing funding to PFC Manning's legal defense is "Courage to Resist." Other organizations have been established independently to promote advocacy and awareness related to PFC Manning's case. These organizations do not contribute in any way to the legal expenses involved.
If you would like to ensure that a 100% of your donation goes directly to costs associated with the legal defense, the best way to do so is by making a contribution to legal trust account. In order to do this, please mail a check or money order to "IOLTA/Manning" and mail to Courage to Resist, 484 Lake Park Ave. #41, Oakland, CA 94610.
Alternatively, you can make a donation to the Bradley Manning Defense Fund through "Courage to Resist" here. A portion of this donation will go toward the legal defense effort. The remainder will go towards public education and support activities.
