"In Lieu of favors a donation has been made to the ___________." Sorry the last post was in a weird format from my cut & paste from my computer.  hope this helps!

Great decision! This is the text we used for a donation in memory of someone:

With much thought and consideration
we have chosen a special way to say
Thank You for sharing our special day

In liu of traditional favors
we have made a donation in your honor to the
ORGANIZATION
in loving memory of Mr. PN’s cousin
FIRST & LAST NAME

We feel the best gifts are ones which
help others live longer and healther lives.

I think the first poster’s short-and-sweet text is just fine, but if you’ve chosen your charities for specific reasons, it would be nice to include some details like Mrs. PN did. Just a quick note would be nice to acknowledge that the donations are "in honor of…" or "in memory of…" or "with gratitude for…" or whatever works in your situation.
