I'm not sure if that helps you in Austria but as far as my research
has shown, using the ffis (http://www.ffis.de/) to make donations to
SPI at least seems to work for german companies (work in terms of tax
deductability and simple money transfer). Since Austria and Germany
are sometimes not so different legally, it might work for you too but
you would have to verify this.
