May A Fundraiser Keep Back Funds To Pay His Own Salary?

Question:

I am employed as a fundraiser by a yeshiva that is behind in paying salaries. Can I use cash that I raised, toward my salary? Keep in mind that when I asked the Rosh Yeshiva to pay my salary from part of the money that was deposited in the bank (i.e.money that the yeshiva is muchzak in) the response was negative.

Answer:

A fundraiser can use cash (only) to pay his own salary in the situation you’ve described. However he can only take funds that he is certain he is owed.
