There is a catch our legal advisor needs to look into as well. From :

If you link your organization's Web site directly to the Network for
Good Giving System as described below, you should be aware that
doing so may be considered a solicitation of charitable
contributions subject to registration and regulation by statute in
approximately 38 states. Several of these state statutes consider
the solicitation to be made where the donor resides, and to have
occurred whether or not a contribution is made. Since the Network
for Good Giving System is not limited to a single state or states,
linking your site to the Network for Good Giving System could
require your organization to register in multiple states. You should
consult with your own legal advisor as to the necessity and method
of registering in your particular situation. Neither Network for
Good, the Network for Good Giving System, nor its partners are
responsible for assisting your organization in such registration
process or for any liability for failure to do so properly.
