Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. Does the organization qualify a 501(c)(3) exempt organization.
That is good. Then your payments would qualify as a charitable donation. You would need a written acknowledge from the organization to substantiate your donation. The acknowledge must state that you did not receive any goods and services for your contribution. Of course, the written acknowledgement must contain the Fair Market Value of the donation (the amount of payments to the entertainers). The letter must provide sufficient information to substantiate the donation.

There is no specific form. You would just need a letter saying that you made a donation in x amount and that no goods or services were exchange. The organization does not need to submit any forms to the IRS regarding the donation.
It was my pleasure. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.
