    give 200 dollars TO/FOR his election campaign

    My cousin told me today that he did a piece of sentence-making homework on the word 'campaign'.

    His sentence was: Mary gave 200 dollars to Gary's election campaign.

    His teacher marked 'to ' should be replaced by 'for'.

    Is that a must? He wants to know, and me too. Thank you for your help.

    Both "to" and "for" are acceptable.
