Dear Brother in Islam,

The answer to your question is as follows:

The money donated for a Masjid should be used for the same Masjid. But if a Masjid is, indeed, financially strong and has enough money that it neither needs in present nor in future, and there is no reliable person or source to safeguard the money and it may be used in wrong expenditures then these free money can be used on the consent of trustees for the nearest Masjid that is in need of financial support. (Shamee, Makatab-e-Rashidiah, Kitabul Waqf, Vol: 3 Page: 407)

And Allah knows the best,
