A person not a party to a contract but to whom the benefits of a contract flow as a direct result of an intention to make a gift to that person. In a third party contract, the person who takes the benefit of the contract though there is no privity between him and the contracting parties. Where performance of a promise in a contract will benefit a person other than the promisee, that person is a "donee beneficiary" if it appears from the terms of the promise in view of the accompanying circumstances that the purpose of the promisee in obtaining the promise is to make a gift to the beneficiary or to confer upon him a right against the promissor to some performance not due from the promisee to the beneficiary.
