I've received all the usual pitches:
- I'm a college student and need this for a project
- We're a small company and don't have much money
- We're a startup and don't have much capital
- We're a non-profit
The first 3 I just ignore.
The last one "may" be intriguing IF I can verify the NPO status for a fact AND IF the domain isn't a gold standard that is being sought for a . . prayer?
Have you ever discounted a domain or donated one "for the right cause"?
Anyone ever do such a thing . . and somehow get burned? The domain ended up in the wrong hands no long after the donation? The NPO turned out to be a real moneymaker . . for its unprincipled principals?
I'm giving thought to my latest "charitable solicitation". I may be willing to give some ground, for a variety of good reasons, but before I make a decision I've asked for a bit more information about the charity.
What do you do when asked to do charity?
