Go ahead and do it. It’s a non-profit that I assume you and your fiancee feel passionately about, you know that it could need the help – and it’s ultimately your money you are spending, not your guests’.

I think that should be fine.  Maybe put a little description of your organization for people who might not be as familiar with it?  Best of luck!

I say do it. I work for a non-profit too, and I totally get it. You work there because you care! Make some nice tribute cards (or ask the development office if they have some) and have one ready for each person.

Is your non profit controversial?  If not, then you’re all set… but if it is, some guests might not like having a donation given in their name!  Just a thought…

Good luck!

Sounds fine.  When you say arts, are they all performers or some painters?  Could you have the performers or artists, do something at the wedding?  Could you get a little slave labor to make someting for  the guests?  Then they can put their names on them and get a little recognition for themselves and the nonprofit?  Or if it’s dancers or actors, maybe they could do a quick show/number etc and you could announce that this basically what the donation is going towards and the performers thank you (in better words.)  I guess the performance could be part of the "favor" too.

I don’t think it’s weird at all, it sounds like a really good cause.  If you feel really torn about the decision, you could split the donations between your place of work, and a second charity.
