How to Online Fundraise for Multiple Charities

Hi all, looking for some advice.
I've started running an online quiz which has picked up some transactions. I should have over 50 participants next week. 
I am going to suggest an optional £1 entry per player which will go to charity. I would like the winning quiz team to choose a charity that will be donated to that week. 

What would be the best way to receive the donation and then give it to the relevant charity? I've looked at a JustGiving but you can only select one charity to donate to on there. 
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

    Have the winners this week decide who next week's entry fees will go to. Then set up a Just Giving Fundraising Page for next week's events for the chosen charity (who must already be registered with JustGiving) and ask people to list their name/team name. You'll need to set up a separate JustGiving Fundraising Page each week. 
    Advantage is as next week's quiz is going to be fundraising for a named charity you can link with that charity's social media and other channels to publicise your event, and hopefully get more supporters. 
    Put in your entry rules that if the winning team's nomination for the following week's proceeds isn't on Just Giving or there is any other problem then the team chosen by the runners-up is nominated for the following week's proceeds. 
    A kind word lasts a minute, a skelped erse is sair for a day.

    One other small issue with this is that you should ask a charity BEFORE you link their name, social media etc to your event. So it could become slightly trickier in that situation, although generally it's not a problem if you do ask a charity if you can link them to an event.

    Thanks for both your posts! I'm going to take your advice! I will also make sure to ask the charity first before linking them to social media etc... Thank you!
