Is it permissible for a wife to give her money to her family as a charity, or a gift without asking her husband, or seeking his consent ?

Answer:
The wife has the right to give her money as a charity, or a gift to her family, or to other people after consulting her husband out of respect, and this is the meaning of treating on footing of kindness and equity. Therefore, if he wanted to stop her from helping her family, then there is no harm in not telling him.
