    What is the 501c(3) organization? You say that a gift was made intending that it fund a gift to a specific individual's estate, but charitable contributions may not be directed to any specific individual - that would make it a personal gift, not a charitable donation. I suspect that you may not understand how the organization makes decisions on how it grants money to recipients. We can look into this a bit deeper if you tell us the name of the charity.
