Jewish definition of a charity

May one use one's Ma'aser (tithe) money to donate to non-Jewish charities, or is the requirement for Ma'aser only fulfilled if the recipient is Jewish or a Jewish institution (assume for purposes of the question that the institution engages in either religious practice or learning, or support of the needy, not a Jewish-oriented nonprofit - I think that may warrant a separate question.)?

  • @IsaacMoses I think this question is substantially different from the one linked, mostly because it has a far more precise focus. Incidentally, several questions which are kal v'chomer dupes of the one linked (and which are dupes of each other) are still open. judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/34974/… and judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/44676/… Thanks – SAH May 3 '16 at 22:17
  • I'm with @SAH on this one -- more to the point, this question is specifically about maaser, which may or may not have the same rules as "charity," in the other question. – MTL May 4 '16 at 14:17
