No, there is no such system in SL.  LL does not prohibit fund-raising for charitable causes, and in fact there are many excellent charity drives in SL each year.  One of the most visible examples is Relay For Life ("RFL", an annual fundraising event for the American Cancer Society), which has been a prominent event in SL since 2004.  Major organizations like RFL do voluntarily post their records (http://www.relayforlife.org/), but there is no formal expectation or policy in SL that says they must do so.  It is therefore difficult to verify that funds raised for any specific cause in SL are actually used for that purpose.

The closest that LL seems to come in stating a policy is in its guidelines for events that are sponsored by LL itself: "While we appreciate the efforts Residents make to inform, educate, and encourage support of charitable causes, this Linden-sponsored event cannot be used as a vehicle for the procurement of donations for charity. Allowance of such can be misconstrued as a public endorsement would require legal intervention. While within your exhibit you may provide external links and landmarks to locations that provide an avenue for donations to be made, they may not be made directly from the event fairgrounds in any respect. It is impossible for us to verify the legitimacy of every organization participating."
