From the Pew:

      Change in IRS Regulations relating to Church Contributions

        Parishes "are reminded that contributions to foreign charitable organizations, e.g. foreign parishes, dioceses, religious orders, missions, or other charities are NOT deductible as charitable contributions.  This cannot be changed by asking the parishioner to make their check payable to the parish with the intended foreign charity noted on the memo line.  Such contributions are not gifts to the parish, and are not deductible.  In these cases, the parish is acting as a conduit for transmission of the contributions to the foreign charity, which is NOT an eligible donee."
