 I went to Alabama Hills for the first time this last weekend. I was impressed at how many of the anchors had the more expense"climber's" mussy hooks rather than the cheapo China mussy hooks. Does anyone know how I can donate some funds to the maintenance of this area?

Ask around in this thread: supertopo.com/climbing/thre...;msg=2977573#msg2977573

and the developers/maintenance guys should know who to hool up with.

Those fancy hooks (Fixe Dracos), as well as most of the cheap mussy hooks, were provided by the ASCA (and mostly installed by Rick Poedtke, I also installed some). 

Please donate at safeclimbing.org

The Dracos are quite expensive, we got a few on major discount when they had an overstock a few years back, but generally we can't afford them. There are new Mussy hooks made by Climbtech that are wire gate, hardened, and annodized, and we just got them in, here's what they look like compared to a Draco and a regular mussy (tow hook):
