About us

How it all started

Just as drips of water over millennia can carve out caves and canyons, one small mitzvah multiplied several times over can move mountains as well.

That’s the belief of Dr. Jonathan Donath, a chiropractor in White Plains, New York, who got an epiphany in 2018 while dropping a dollar bill into the tzedakah box at his shul. “No matter how much money I give to charity, I still get a mitzvah every time I drop a dollar in,” he thought. “How can I guarantee that I do this mitzvah every day for a buck?”

He looked for an organization that was doing this and couldn’t find one. So, he and a couple of his friends had a website built and created a nonprofit: dailygiving.org.

At Daily Giving, we firmly believe in the extraordinary power of small acts of generosity to bring about positive change. We are a platform that promotes a simple yet impactful concept: giving at least $1 every day of the year.

Dr. Jonathan Donath, a full-time chiropractor in White Plains, NY, founded Daily Giving in 2019. Since its inception, Daily Giving has achieved remarkable milestones by harnessing the collective power of Daily Givers— making significant differences in the lives of countless individuals and families around the globe.

FAQ’s

How much of my money goes to the actual charities?

One hundred percent! Our operations and marketing budgets are covered by a private group of donors so that our Daily Givers’ full donations help fund a different beneficiary each and every day.

Can I give more than $1 each day?
Of course! Most people give $1 a day, but many give additional daily dollars for family members, loved ones who are sick, or for those who have passed away. View our most popular dollar amounts per day here.
How often will I be charged?
You can choose to have your account charged either monthly or yearly. (We do not charge your account every day in order to avoid extra processing fees.) We then distribute a portion of your gift every day until the next recurring charge.

PLEASE NOTE: We only distribute donations outside of Shabbat and Yom Tov days, as per Jewish law.

Can I send a check?
If you would prefer to send a check, we’ve got you covered. Checks can be made out to Daily Giving Inc. and can be sent to:

PO Box 217
Teaneck, NJ 07666

Make sure to include your name, address, phone number, and email with your check so that we can keep you updated on your tzedaka.

Can I join if I live outside of the United States?
We accept donations from anywhere in the world, although we can only share a US tax receipt at the moment. Stay tuned for news on tax deduction status in other countries.
Can I dedicate my donation in memory of or in honor of someone or an event?
Yes, you can! When you sign up, you will be prompted with an opportunity to dedicate your tzedaka. If your donation is a gift for a loved one, you can request that you both receive our daily emails as a reminder of your gift to them. We can then write an email on your behalf informing them of your donation. Contact us directly to customize your message.
How do I receive a tax receipt?

Tax receipts are sent to the email on your account after every donation you make. As a Daily Giver, you can access your receipts in your donor portal at any time.

How do I make changes to my account?

You can adjust your Daily Giving credit card and subscription information by visiting your donor portal at portal.dailygiving.org. Additionally, you can send an email to hello@dailygiving.org or call us at (743) B-A-GIVER.
