IANAL, but the US generally requires tax-deductible donations go to
503(c) (a tax code) non-profit corporations and get a receipt from the
organization to prove your donation. I say "generally" because even if
your taxes were audited, auditors are overworked people, who usually
don't take their jobs seriously enough to harass someone over a $100
donation to any organization with "foundation" in the name, especially
if you can produce a receipt. They're usually just happy if you show up
with any documentation at all. To them that's a sign you at least
intended to do the "right thing". Auditors are people, too.
