Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

The donations will be treated as gifts. Nothing need to be reported by your sister-in-law unless she receives more than 100K from a foreign donor(s). If any of the donors write her a check for more than 14K, the donor will need to file a gift tax return. The donations will not be tax deductible.
