That’s good basic wording from mightywombat.  You might also want to put information about the charity somewhere (maybe not on everyone’s card) for the people like me who would like to read up on the charity.

@sorrycharlie: Hum… I definitely agree that this wouldn’t offend me. It makes me sad to think that any guest would get upset with you for HOW you donated to an amazing charity like the one you’ve chosen. IMO, “In your honor” should be just fine. PS: that dog is just TOO CUTE! 🙂

You can do “in your honor”, but have have people that can take offense if they don’t like the foundation. We are debating about donating to our local humane society, which is where we got our one dog, but know that some people would take offense to that (due to the fact HS euthanizes).

Something you can do is just saying “We’ve made a donation to xyz in honor of our big day”, and leave out the “your”.

I wouldn’t be offended, but I know some people could be.

Just something to consider 🙂 – I’ve already heard crap from my family when I considered just donating to the local HS instead of favors.
