www.migraines.org/about/aboumemb.htm offers a list of all the ways people can make donations

In the very early 90's when the concept of MAGNUM was formed, we began operations as an unfunded, grassroots organization. Since then MAGNUM has operated primarily by donations and unrestricted educational grants since its incorporation in 1994. MAGNUM has received educational grants from such corporations as Abbott Laboratories, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Elan Pharmaceuticals/Carnrick Laboratories Inc, GlaxoWellcome, Merck, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, and Zeneca, now AstaZeneca Pharmaceuticals. In addition, MAGNUM had also received donated services for specific projects from such companies as Proxicom, WebFirst, Darby Digital Communications; Fannon Color Printing; Mitchell Color Cards, Heath M.D. Wiggins Graphic Design; Extra Touch of Class, Inc.; Gordon King, Owner, Bullfeathers Restaurant; and Broadway Gallery in Fairfax, Virginia.
In 1996, MAGNUM launched its Web site www.migraines.org to which it continues to add information. This site was made possible by the Clio-award winning company, Proxicom, owned by Raul Fernandez, which was kind enough to donate its time and expertise.
