Gift donation to a gun charity?

Hi! I'd like to give someone the gift of a charity donation to a gun (well, anti-gun) charity. Can anyone recommend one -- esp. if they have the option of "gifting" a donation rather than just making one? And how do you actually give a charity donation to someone if that "gift" option isn't available? Just let them know? A receipt seems tacky. Thanks!

Just about every charity has "gift in honor of" options. Here is the donation page to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and it has a "honor someone with your contribution" option at bottom right, which will notify the honoree.

Before charities provided that option, I would find a especially nice card, and hand write,
Dear ...
A donation in your honor has been made to ....

Can't go wrong with black ink.

I've given donations in honor of other people to the Brady Campaign. They still send me tons of mail. I did what Jesse the K suggests, especially because charities are not always super prompt about sending the acknowledgment.

Brady Campaign is a great organization as the others have said.
