An anonymous gift of a cashier's check is the perfect way to give away large sums of money. Giving away money in the form of cash is simply too risky, and a cashier's check is an alternative when giving sums greater than $1,000. Using cashiers checks is an anonymous option if you don't want the recipient to know where the money came from.
Go to giveanon.org, and sign up. You start your gift online by using your financial information. You give the name and address of the person you want to receive your monetary gift and provide other details. The entire price is performed online. You even fill in a little check on the Internet.
Complete the process on-line and fund your donation. You do this with your credit card over the web, and they accept most major lines of credit cards. Carefully complete all fields in the Internet form.
Close out the process and your cashier's check gets mailed to your intended recipient. You don't have to do anything else. If your intended recipient doesn't cash the check, your donation will be refunded in total.
Anonymous gifts of checks with blank names should never be put under doors or in mailboxes.
