Default Can I withdraw a donation I made to a tax exempt charity?

NY

Can I withdraw a donation I made to a tax exempt charity (5 months ago) if I have come to learn things about the organization that I do not agree with.

Do I have that legal right? Or is there some procedure I could follow or something?

Thank you.

Sorry, if you already paid the money, there are no take backs.

I wish to inform you that when a donor gives money to a nonprofit organization, that money is no longer the donor’s once accepted by the charity. Instead, the money is, in effect, owned by the public interest. Because nonprofit organizations exist to benefit the public interest, regulators will be concerned that gifts are used to further the public interest. Returning a donor’s gift could be contrary to the public interest. That’s the issue for regulators. Further, nonprofit organizations are required to return a donor’s gift if the funds cannot be used according to the donor’s intent or if any significant provisions of a gift agreement are violated. The donor’s intent and/or the gift agreement are a contract governing the relationship between the donor and the organization. Nonprofit organizations are legally bound by such agreements. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance.

That would seem to possibly open the door to challenging the gift?

No, it would not.

Why not?
It seems there are reasons that DO justify returns in some cases.
