How can we set up an option for a customer to donate $ to a non-profit partner through our site?

We are partnering with a non-profit and want to give our customers the option of donating $ to them through us. Is there some functionality in CV3 that will do that or can you suggest a way to do this?

One way I can see it done is:

Set up a promoition that would trigger at checkout and give an option of adding an donation, as an item, to the order. Set that item as tax exempt. You will collect the money, and would have to do some accounting work to not recognise is as your revenue as you forward it to your partner. Hope this helps.

Sounds promising...how would I set up a promotion that would trigger at checkout?
There are few methods to tackle that. Depends if you want to have customer specify how much they will donate or give them range of options: $1, $5, $10, etc. Check shopmedvet.com/viewcart , put some products in the cart and use promo code 84. The drop down that appears with "free items" is the way we handle giving away promotional goods, which you can use for your purposes. You can call me to talk this through. Jay 847-680-3050
I would also suggest that you do not pay CV3 to do this for you. It can be done with the gift certificate templates as well. See our example here: http://www.tahoemountainsports.com/product/donation-product
