Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you do not have a claim against the donation centers based on what you've told me. As a donor, you are not entitled to make donations and the centers may refuse to take your donations for any reason they find necessary. I
Don't shoot the messenger.
They have discretion to choose whomever they want to receive donations from unless the basis for their choosing is a based on racism or something similar. You don't have any right or entitlement to donate. This isn't like an employment situation, or like a government program situation. Their decision to not accept your donation, no matter what it is based on, does not trigger any rights that you have. Further, the situation does not fit into a claim for fraud or anything like that, because you do not have a right to the income from the donations.
Again, don't shoot the messenger. Sorry there's not better news I can give you.
