For the sake of the argument, if someone believes in tithing - they should give that amount to their local church. The OT tithes went to the synagogues and the temple (the storehouses of the OT), and the NT says this:

1 Corinthians 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

I do believe that our giving/freewill offerings can go to wherever we decide to send it (of course, we should be seeking the Lord's leading in what we do with our giving too).
