Not sure how to ask this so bear with me:
I'm looking for a Wordpress Plugin for Fundraising Donations. All of the donations go to one cause BUT when you are on the site, you can join a "Group".  When you are on the group page you can make a donation to the cause but it is made on behalf of that group name.  So each "Group" can track how much they have raised for the cause.

Any help here?

Okay.  PayPal donations in and of themselves are easy to set up but when you start to add tracking requirements it kind of goes to heck in a handbasket.

What I prefer to do with requirements like yours is not use the PayPal buttons (or any of the plugins that generate a PayPal button) and instead use a good WordPress form handler that can integrate with PayPal for checkouts.  There are three candidates that I know of:

1) FormidablePro  ($47)
2) Ninja Forms ($49)
3) GravityForms ($199)

All three of those can easily track which page or group the donation is coming from so producing grouped totals would be pretty simple.

@Jason, will those work with BuddyPress?

Yes, absolutely.  All three of them just produce shortcodes for the forms.  Works with anything.
