I tried to make the same case on this list in the Fall. It's what I
beleive to be true, but have a hard time applying.
After discussion, I called the IRS. While a 501 (3)c status or
determination is required, they didn't seem to care. Their question
was, is it to the Boy Scouts? If so it's OK. It's your risk, but for
amounts under $200 each time for no benefit to the donor, I'd guess that
the IRS won't bother to demand proof of eligibility.
