The ability to plan for future legacy income is what enables us to develop ongoing partnerships with organisations across the world.
Everyday there are more children who desperately need our support. Children who are suffering from physical, learning or emotional difficulties; children who are abused, neglected, deprived or disadvantaged; children caught up in the ravages of terrorism and war; children caught in the poverty trap and children battling against severe illness or trauma.
Jewish Child’s Day supports more than 19,000 vulnerable Jewish children every year worldwide, therefore your legacy will NEVER be forgotten.
The income that we receive from gifts in Wills is vital to our work now and on an ongoing basis. Through generous legacies left in Wills, Jewish Child’s Day has been fortunate enough to help transform the lives of thousands of vulnerable Jewish children.
In addition, thanks to us being the beneficiary of some larger legacies, we have been able to award life-changing sums over and above our standard grant application process – this presents an incredible opportunity for us and the projects we support.
In the UK
Malcolm’s gift in his Will has helped give disabled Jewish children in the UK the chance to benefit from weekly swimming sessions – just one of the weekly activities provided by the Step-by-Step programme we support.
A generous legacy has enabled Jewish Child’s Day to provide two accessible transit vehicles to Ezra Umarpeh, an organisation providing vital medical equipment to the wider community. One parent said, “Having unlimited access to Ezra Umarpeh’s brand new vehicle was a light in the dark tunnel of lockdown. We were able to take Danny, who is vulnerable and isolating, further afield to open spaces without compromising his safety. Living in a small flat, this was literally a breath of fresh air whenever he needed it.”
A recent gift in a Will has enabled us to pay for therapy for Avi, a vulnerable young boy who has suffered an extremely traumatic childhood. Avi now lives in a nurturing youth village in Israel and he is going from strength to strength.
In Eastern Europe
Milly left a gift in her will which has helped us to donate toys and books to the Mazel Tov nursery in Belarus, helping vulnerable toddlers to play in a safe environment and learn about their Jewish heritage.
- If you already have a Will and would like to change your will to include Jewish Child’s Day, please ask your solicitor about a codicil (a legal document which amends your will to include your additional request).
- If you have already included Jewish Child’s Day in your Will, you may want to let us know so that we can honour you in your lifetime.
Whatever the size of your gift, it is important to know that any donation is exempt from inheritance tax. So, by leaving a gift to charity, you can reduce the amount of tax payable on your estate and ensure that the Inland Revenue does not become its largest beneficiary.
Thank you for considering leaving a gift to Jewish Child’s Day which will have a lasting impact and will make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable & disadvantaged children.
