when she charged to donation on her charge card, it was then transmitted to the organization who would have sent her a letter recognizing her donation which she can claim in her Sch A now her debt is to the credit card company(who actually sent the money to the organization) and when she lists her obligations for b/k it is the credit card company she will list

Yes. Think of it exactly the same as if she donated $1000 of rent money, then paid the rent with a $1000 cash advance on the credit card. Only question I see is if she ran up the credit card full knowing she was about to declare bankruptcy. That could be fraud.
