One avenue that might work for you is "directed donation". This is where an
individual or business makes a donation to the local council "for the direct
use of Ship or Troop xxx"
Our local historical society receives this type of donation earmarking funds
for a certain project on a regular basis & our CPA tells us the donor could
demand their monies back should we spend it on something else!
