Question:

Similar to the question found here: http://dinonline.org/2018/06/18/asking-for-a-raise-in-order-to-give-it-to-maaser/

I’m wondering what if an employer was more inclined to give a donation on my behalf to an institution than giving me money/raise directly, can I count that as Ma’aser?

Answer:

If this is indeed what the employer wants, and he is giving the money to tzedakah instead of giving you the raise it is fine and you can count it as part of your maaser money. If however the employer was going to give the money to tzedakah anyways, then it isn’t really instead of your raise, and then obviously it wouldn’t count.
