Using chomesh money

Question:

Could I use money that I was מפריש as חומש to use for personal use as a incentive for something רוחני?

Answer:

If it is meant for tzedakah, it can’t be used for personal use, because then it isn’t giving it to anyone, and like moving it from one pocket to the other.

Best Wishes
