    First, you need to know the difference between "thanks for" and "thanks to"

    "thanks for" means " give thanks to someone or something"

    "thanks to" means " due to (or because of) someone or something".

    Now, which one would you choose? I would choose "thanks to".

    If you want to use Chinese to understand it:

    using "thanks for", 感谢慷慨捐赠, ....

    using "thanks to", 因為慷慨捐赠, 所以 ...

    翻譯成中文, 它似乎並不有什麼區別. 然而, 英語語意告訴你它指出一個原因及其結果. 不是感謝一個原因,而產生其結果.
