Question:

I had promised in my mind to give a certain amount of money to tzedakah while in an unpleasant situation. May I now use maaser money to pay this or no?

Answer:

No, once you have pledged the money, you have an obligation to give it to charity. Maaser may not be used to pay for other charity obligations a person already has.
