    Suppose you had a good friend who passed away - and in the obit - it is requested that donations be sent to an organization you fully disagree with. For example - Planned Parenthood or a Roman Catholic organization.
    Yet, you would like to do something - would you then send a donation to - say a pro-life organization in the name of your friend?

    Yes. Send your donation to an organization you support. Then send them a note saying what you did for whom.

    If you are going to tell the family, I would recommend giving to as neutral of a charity as possible.

    American Red Cross is one.

    It depends on the relevance, but I'm partial to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (I have a child who was treated for cancer there.).

    Thanks

    I like World Vision but it's not exactly neutral.
