My first worry would be that if this is an unregistered charity then the donation will not be Inheritance Tax (IT) free. There is some guidance viz 'The legislation further defines ‘given to charities’ to mean assets that are given ‘if it becomes the property of charities or is held on trust for charitable purposes only’.' I would still be a tad concerned in this manner.
