Halacha - ReAllocating Tzedoka money
Submitted by Yeruchom Weiss  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Most Poskim hold that until the money reaches the hand of the recipient or the gabbai tzedaka one may change his mind as where to give his donation. However, there are opinions that just the thought of commiting to give tzedaka to a specific cause is binding and would require hataras nedarim to divert the funds even to another worthy cause.

The sefer Tzedaka U'Mishpat writes that it makes no difference whether one has spoken out loud his intentions or not, and even if he told the prospective beneficiary he may still change his mind according to the more lenient opinion. Of course, under these circumstances there is the the additional factor of bein adam l'chaveiro to take into account.
