This is a bog standard 419 advanced fee fraud.

They are offering to transfer a large sum of money to your account (in this case for you to use charitably).

However, the money doesn't exist and all that will happen is that you will be asked for fee after fee after fee, by various banks and lawyers.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
