Does anyone know of any other countries, or local areas, that restrict
direct donations to an organization like TDF.
AFAIK, an organisation registered in Australia needs a permit to
solicit (request) donations from the public. However, Australians can
donate to any organisation they wish, whether within Australia or not.


I do not think in the US there are any restrictions about giving money
to any organization (Wikipedia, TDF, etc).

The primary legal issue is if the donation is tax deductible; is the
group a recognized charity by the IRS and properly organized according
to Federal and State laws governing charities in the US.

I suspect many countries have similar laws/attitudes of you can give to
anyone (or group) but can only claim tax deductions to locally
registered non-profits/charities.
