May a participant specify that funds go to a different nonprofit organization?

This is possible, but not encouraged because the goal of the program is to support entrepreneurship as efficiently as possible. The selected nonprofits have been vetted and approved to support the mission and interests of all participants in the program. Arrangements have been made, and operational systems put in place to transfer funds efficiently at minimal cost. While other arrangements are possible, these would introduce additional steps and possibly costs. Any alternative recipients must be nonprofit organizations with a charitable mission.
