Donate to Charity with Affiliate Links

Are there any programs out there that will allow me to find charities with affiliate ID's, so I can insert them into links on my blog?

I'm not looking for charity affiliates that will pay me a commission for referrals or sign-ups -- I am not interested in making any money off of affiliate linking, at all.
When I link out to a site with an affiliate program, I'd like to include a legitimate affiliate ID for a legitimate charity organization. I want the organization to get the full commission off of every click.
A nice-to-have would be a way to track the amount of donations that went to chosen charities via my links.
Are there any programs or services that do this sort of thing? I've googled "charity affiliate," but that mostly brings back programs that will pay me a commission for referrals. I've also looked at some major charity websites, but haven't found what I'm looking for.
If there's not a program like this in existence, is there anybody who'd be interested in working together to set one up (again, as a volunteer effort - I'm not looking to make a single red cent off of this)?
And yes, I do know that MetaFilter has an Amazon affiliate ID. I've considered applying that to my Amazon links, but I'm interested in supporting charitable organizations with other links, too.
