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.
Just as Jews pray every day and make blessings before eating, and say Shema before falling asleep at night, giving charity should also be performed regularly – each and every day. Daily Giving makes that goal – that mitzvah – easy and attainable. Many of us have been taught from a very young age to put something in the Tzedaka box for the poor every day.
Jewish children across the world do this mitzvah each and every morning with zeal and excitement. Daily Giving 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 charity is making a significant difference. Now it can! By giving only a dollar a day, an amount that most can afford, you will be contributing together alongside thousands of others.
These combined efforts and dollars will reach further and impact 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 will be distributed to our list of worthy causes every year!
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 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?
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 messenger and distribute your dollar on a daily basis whether you are charged monthly or annually.
Of course! Currently $1 a day is the lowest amount we can take. Most people give $1 a day, but many give $1 a day for additional family members or even on behalf of someone who is sick or for those who are no longer with us.
Yes, when you sign up there is an optional space to write who you will be making the donations for. If it is in honor or a gift for a loved one, you can also request that you both receive our daily emails as a reminder of your gift to them. We can also write an email on your behalf telling them of your donation
One hundred percent. 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 charity.
Tax receipts are sent out in January/February for the previous tax year.
We use a payment platform called Stripe which will convert your payment to USD no matter where you are from.
Yes, we would be happy to make those changes for you. You can reach out to us using the contact page on our website.
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 a holiday is 2-3 days, the funds will be distributed either before or after the holiday for those days.
Of course! We are certain that many of our enrollees already give a lot of charity, and many are already giving to the needy in their communities. The beauty of Daily Giving is that your dollar automatically combines with your friend’s, your neighbor’s, and so many other members of the Jewish community 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 Daily Giving, goes far beyond that which the few coins in a tzedaka box can amount to, and can supplement any amount of personal giving you already do. There is no limit to giving charity, 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.
We expect and hope to have thousands of people join Daily Giving. 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.
You can apply. Please send us a one-page description of the charity and why you think it fits in the mix of other Daily Giving charities. Please explain how that charity can share Daily Giving with its own donors. There have been hundreds of requests from incredible nonprofits around the world asking to be included on Daily Giving’s platform. It was taking a significant amount of time for our volunteers to respond to everyone. To create an efficient process that respects the time of applicants and ensures quick turnaround and deployment of resources, Daily Giving cannot respond proposals at this time. We add new organizations each year and will reach out to those qualified when the time comes. Thank you for your understanding.
