Donor Intent for Tzedakah


It is assumed that non-earmarked donations to a general tzedakah fund are meant to be used locally. However, if it is known that the fund's donors generally give to non-local recipients as well, and the donor did not specify otherwise, then the donation may be used for non-local recipients in accordance with the fund's standard practice.

(Tzedakah uMishpat 3:20)

Have a great day,
