With all due regards, I feel charitable contributions
are personal. What is more important? Ramakrishna mission
in Bangalore runs a home for poor students, providing
boarding and lodging to college students. Some who 
cannot afford meals eat there. Is this less important
than an offering to a temple. Raja Simhan in Madras
asked money for a Vedantha patasala to train priests.
I disafgreed because I would not want my kids
to study vwda instead of science.
Let us stick to Vaishana philosophy. Of course
every doanation to a cause is one's own karma
