ok here is excerpt from mail communication so that you can understand better why I am so confused about this:
first e-mail from them:

Thanks for reaching out and wanting to support The Ocean Cleanup with
donations made with Cardano - we really appreciate it!
Below you can find our ADA wallet address:
All cryptocurrency donations are made to Stichting The Ocean Cleanup,
a registered charity in The Netherlands. Please note, we are unable to
provide a tax receipt to an individual with a dollar/euro amount, only
a proof of donation with the wallet id, transaction id, and amount of
the specific crypto donation.
If you wish to donate a significant or recurring amount, or via
another cryptocurrency, please let us know.
Independent supporters have chosen not to commit to The Ocean Cleanup
upfront. We kindly ask independent supporters to state they are
independent of -and not endorsed or sponsored by- us and to not
mention The Ocean Cleanup on packaging, in advertising, or on
promotional material. A low-key mention, for example, on your site, in
a blog or newsletter is okay - as long as it’s not used as part of the
sales strategy. For example, if you will be donating a portion of the
proceeds, only mention The Ocean Cleanup once the campaign has
concluded. To ensure proper branding and fact-checking, we ask for all
proposed communication material be sent to our team for review. Our
logo is not available for external use.
We would like to kindly ask you to not share our wallet address
publicly. Many thanks for your understanding.
We have unfortunately started to see our name being abused by some
tokens, which has led to the above guidelines.
To: Info | The Ocean Cleanup firstname.lastname@example.org
Today we sent you 100 ADA to that address you provided, transaction
detail is visible here:
Transaction | Cardano Explorer
I hope this donation will help you with your project, keep up the good
Petr, adaseal team
To which we got this response later after asking for donation confirmation

I have contacted our IT department to verify whether this donation has
arrived and was informed that it was not received by us. I can’t
provide you with proof of donation under these circumstances.
after some urges to verify again:

I am sorry, but we were not able to find your donation in our database. Since our wallet address is already made public it is completely fine for you to be using the transaction ID as proof for your donation!
Once again, I’m sorry we were not able to recover proof of your donation but we thank you for you contribution to our mission!
Now I am fine with not having this confirmation, but it’s a bit frustrating that we sent them ADA and they can’t find it. We wanted to use this for promotion to show how Cardano is empowering positive global change, but if its users find it so hard to even use then that’s a bit of fail for us.
Hopefuly their ADA was not stolen… In explorer I can see balance 0 on that address we sent to.
