Commission was created by Congress to help with these kinds of projects. Click on the letter from the Commission .
Foundations may prefer to mail donations directly to the Commission.
Here is the complete wording from their website about donations, with the relevant passage in bold:
Since the Commission is a United States Government agency, contributions to it qualify for the charitable contribution deduction for federal income, estate and gift tax purposes. Contributions made by private foundations meet the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code regarding qualifying distributions.
Donations should clearly indicate that they are to be used for the Dokshitsy Cemetery project
