Daily Giving Inc. Board of Directors:
Our mission is to enable every Jew to easily perform the mitzvah of tzedaka every single day, and to disperse those funds to deserving Jewish non-profit organizations around the world on a daily basis.
Daily Giving – Tzedaka Yomi
Just as Jews pray three times a day, put on tzitzis each morning, and make blessings before eating, giving charity should also be performed regularly – each and every day. Tzedaka Yomi makes that goal – that mitzvah – easy and attainable. Many of us have been taught from a very young age to put a penny in the pushke every day. Jewish children across the world do this mitzvah each and every morning with zeal and excitement.
Tzedaka Yomi is determined to bring back the joy that giving just a little can bring to one’s soul. When you donate daily, your small donation will be combined with thousands of others, and given each day to a deserving charity.
What can a dollar do?
Sometimes, in the massive world of Jewish philanthropy, it can become challenging to feel that your tzedaka is making a significant difference. Yours can! By giving only a dollar a day, an amount that most can afford, you will be contributing together alongside what we hope will be tens of thousands of others in the Tzedaka Yomi Project.
These combined efforts and dollars will reach further and effect more Jews than most of us can ever hope to reach on our own. Your one dollar a day will be multiplied exponentially by the power of unity. With approximately 14.5 million Jews in the world today, if only 1% gave a dollar a day, that would mean well over 50 million dollars in charitable funds to be distributed to our list of worthy causes.
How it Works?
Choose a recurring donation amount ($1/day, $2/day, $5/day, etc), and decide whether you want to be charged once a month or once a year. Due to the credit card transaction fees, it would not be prudent to charge your credit card daily. Daily Giving Inc. will be your shaliach/messenger and distribute your dollar on a daily basis whether you are charged monthly or annually. You will receive a daily Email informing you of which organization you helped support that day.
Example: Today, your dollar was one of $17,411 sent to help support Camp HASC.
Who are we supporting?
We are committed to seeing your full daily dollar support a worthy cause. Therefore, a small surcharge to cover the credit card transaction fees, has been added to your donation to ensure that your full dollar goes to tzedaka.
Daily Giving Inc. is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization. It is run purely by volunteers who believe in the cause. Our team donates their time, expertise, and dollars to help this initiative succeed. No one receives a salary or payment.
We expect and hope to have thousands of people join this Tzedaka Yomi initiative. It is impossible to pick charities that all of our participants will be completely familiar with. Feel free to review our list of charities and click on the links to their websites in order to learn more about them. We are confident that you will be impressed with each one and with its unique mission. No matter if your passion is helping the infirm, strengthening religious life, or feeding the hungry, all of our selected charities are worthy causes, and all assist in areas that need our collective attention. We hope that our diverse list may broaden our participants’ scope of interest to areas of chessed that may not currently be their priority, but could become one.
Please note that the charities to which we are dedicating our efforts and dollars have, and must, meet the following criteria:
- They must be a 501c3 certified non-profit organization.
- They must serve the greater Jewish community – not one specific community, school, or shul.
There are two choices – once a month or once a year. Due to the credit card transaction fees, it would not be prudent to charge your credit card daily. Daily Giving Inc. will be your shaliach/messenger and distribute your dollar on a daily basis whether you are charged monthly or annually.
A dollar will be given for each day of the week, but will not be given on Shabbos. All funds will be distributed on Fridays before Shabbos and Saturdays after Shabbos.
When Yom Tov is 2-3 days, the funds will be distributed either before or after Yom Tov for those days.
Of course! We are certain that many of our enrollees are already baalei tzedaka, and many are already giving to the needy in their communities. The beauty of Tzedaka Yomi is that your dollar automatically combines with your friend’s, your neighbor’s, and so many other members of Klal Yisrael, to become, G-d willing, hundreds of thousands of dollars, all given to one cause each day. The power of your dollar, and the good that you can do by committing to Tzedaka Yomi, goes far beyond that which the few coins in a pushka can amount to, and can supplement any amount of personal giving you already do. There is no limit to giving tzedaka, and only good can come from doing this mitzvah even more often. Combining all of these small contributions has the potential to make a monumental impact.
