In brief: Masturbation
For the actual donation, sperm is collected by the donor through masturbation.
The larger process from applying to be a donor until the sperm can be released includes screening through medical and personal history taking, and extensive testing of the donor mainly for communicable diseases.

In brief: Collection into cup
Donors are carefully screened for medical history and risk factors, and tested for infectious disease.
They then collect, by masturbation, into a cup. The sample is washed and frozen and placed into quarantine for six months. The donor is then retested for infectious disease and the sample released if testing is normal.
