||In a recent post you replied:
You can give your Tzedaka to a cause that your friend wants to give to and your friend should give to your school. Then it does work.
It may be a good idea to clarify that while this may satisfy the mitzva of tzedaka, the IRS will take a much different view of it, and, despite that it is "sometimes" done, you may be putting the Yeshiva/shul/etc. in jeopardy.
Not to mention the embarrasment to the entire Jewish community when newspapers gleefully print stories of such organizations that help orchestrate/facilitate such schemes.
I'm sure that you only meant to give halachic advice and not tax/legal advice.
