Easiest way is to send it through one of the various free fax sending web sites.  No fax modem needed, no dedicated POTS analog phone line required.  There are many such sites; search for "free fax" and you'll get a long list of 'em.

Also and now more common, scan the document to PDF and send by email. This works better and is accepted in most circumstances

Sending faxes is not free and fax-to-email solutions are for receiving faxes via a fax number (at least the ones I know of)

If you really want to send a fax, you probably need a paid-for-solutions, usually works with credits.

Are you willing to pay for sending faxes?

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

         Thank you for your suggestions.  Using John's recommendation, I was able to scan the needed documents to PDF files and send them as file attachments to the needed parties.  The procedure was straightforward and accepted by the recipients
