Sure, the link could use nofollow. But this begs the question why the use of nofollow should be used when the OP seems to genuinely care about this charitable foundation and what it stands for. Is this not an editorial link?
Linking, as an act of kindness, could actually do more harm to the charitable foundation then good. Footer links could possibly trigger some sort of penalty and cause the foundation to be penalized in Google.
This is the problem we have when so much of the online world is controlled by one entity. A loss of the freedom to link freely, without fear of retaliation, is the new norm. I can only imagine how bad it will be five years from now.
JD_Toims was correct in stating that it is sad that we must now debate the potential for Google penalties when linking to a charity.
