I'm not convinced any organisation could hold funds as working capital
if it's already been committed, as it will be in this case.

Prehaps specifying that any donations received must be available to be
transfered to us immediately upon request may be beneficial. I'm not
sure how best to word this to allow for bank delays (eg: credit card
clearance etc).

To be honest, if a orgainsation didn't follow this guideline, I woudn't
be happy using them to accept donations.
