How to give

There are many different ways you can give to Jewish Care. Here's the lowdown on what to do next...

"Many in our community know Jewish Care for our twelve residential care homes. And, it remains the case that over 70% of our 700 residents require our support to meet the cost of their care. However, what you may not know is that we have a vast array of other vital services.... None of these, nor many other resources, would exist without your support" ...Chairman Steven Lewis.

Simcha donations

If there's a Jewish Care service that's close to your heart, why not ask friends and family to donate instead of giving presents at your simcha? 

A simcha donation is a great way to acknowledge a birthday, bar or batmitzvah, wedding/civil partnership, anniversary or just to say thank you to someone special.  More importantly, you will be helping us make a real difference to thousands of people and their families. 

Go to Donate and have the following information ready :

  • your address and telephone number
  • the type of simcha being celebrated
  • the name and contact details of the person/persons celebrating the simcha

You can also send simcha donations by post. Please remember to enclose a covering letter with the information above and send it to:

In memory

You can mark the passing of a family member or friend through our 'Book of Life'.

The 'Book of Life' is a beautiful volume on permanent display at our Head Office, designed to formalise gifts made in memory of a loved one.   The receipt of one or more donations, of any size, will ensure that the name of the departed is inscribed in the book, and the bereaved family will receive an inscribed scroll honouring their loved one.

 The bereavement need not be recent - entries can commemorate someone who died many years ago, or can be made on the occasion of the yahrzeit of a loved one.     

Entries can be arranged by anyone wishing to make a memorial donation - immediate family, relatives or friends. Donations can be made by individuals, families or groups or organisations in memory of colleagues. 

To make a memorial donation by telephone please call: 020 8922 2817


PLEASE NOTE: When donating online you will be asked what kind of donation it is, once you select that it is a 'memorial donation' you will be able to add the memorial details.

Donating shares

Donating shares to Jewish Care is one of the most tax-effective ways of giving, as you won't have to pay any capital gains tax on the shares you donate and you can claim income tax relief too. 12 million people in the UK own shares, with a combined value of £200 billion. If only a tiny fraction of these were donated to charity, imagine what a difference it could make.

Should I donate my shares or sell them and donate the proceeds?

If you decide to sell the shares and donate the proceeds, Jewish Care can claim Gift Aid (an extra 25p for every £1 donated) on your donation. However, if you decide to donate your shares, you can claim personal tax relief on the value of the shares.

What shares attract income tax relief?


Qualifying shares are broadly those that are publicly quoted. Their value is, therefore, readily known. This means that most shares are eligible.

Can I donate my unlisted shares?

Yes, unlisted shares are those that are not publicly traded on the open market, for example, shares in privately owned companies.  Income tax relief is not available on gifts of non-qualifying shares, although any capital gain on the shares may be exempt from capital gains tax.

I have lost my share certificate – can I still donate them to Jewish Care?

You will need to get a replacement certificate before donating your shares. The company’s registrars will be able to help you do this. You will find their details on dividend vouchers or other information relating to your shares. Similarly, if a sole or joint shareholder has died you will need to contact the company’s registrar who will be able to advise you on the correct form of action before donating your shares.

What will Jewish Care do with my shares?


Jewish Care will sell the donated shares and use the proceeds to fund our services for vulnerable people in our community. We do, however, always respect our donors’ wishes and are happy to discuss this further.

We cannot accept responsibility for share certificates sent in the post, but your shares will still be registered in your name until the transfer is completed.

For further information on donating shares to Jewish Care, please call 020 8922 2827 or email us.

Please note that although we are happy to answer any queries you may have about the procedures of making a transfer, Jewish Care is not registered to give financial advice.

You will find explanations and examples of the tax implications on the HM Revenue & Customs website. If you would like advice on your own situation, please consult a financial advisor.

Gift Aid

With just a few clicks you can increase the value of your donation to Jewish Care by 25% at no extra cost to you.

Gift Aid increases the value of your donation to Jewish Care by allowing us to reclaim from the Government the basic rate tax you have already paid on your gift. If you pay tax at the higher rate you can claim extra relief on your donations.

How Gift Aid works

The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by UK taxpayers only. Jewish Care reclaims the basic rate tax from the Government on the 'gross' equivalent of your donation, i.e. the amount before basic rate tax was deducted. Basic rate tax is currently 20 per cent, so this means;

if you give £10 using Gift Aid,
it’s worth £12.50 to Jewish Care.
