Leave a Gift in your Will

A quarter of the money we need to raise to continue our vital work comes from Gifts in people’s Wills

Every year, we need to raise £16 million so that we can continue to support those who need us most. £1 in every £4 we raise is thanks to the generosity of people who kindly decided to remember Jewish Care in their Wills. 

Your gift, whatever the size, will help us ensure we can continue to deliver high quality care to vulnerable members of our community and their families, for years to come. Without gifts in Wills, we simply couldn’t help all those who need us. As we all live longer, the need for Jewish Care will only grow and your legacy can help ensure our services continue.

Your legacy will make a real difference.

Some of our services receive no government funding and are completely reliant on the generosity of our community. A gift in your Will could help us continue to provide these vital services:

  • Jewish Care Direct Helpline - often the first port of call for someone in need of help and support
  • The Family Carers Team - providing someone to listen, much needed advice and guidance for all those caring for a loved one
  • The Social Work and Community Support Team - enabling people to make a meaningful difference to their lives, with dignity and choice
  • Meals on Wheels - not only providing a hot, Kosher meal to those who need it but our volunteer drivers may be the only friendly face our clients see from one day to the next

Do I have to leave a gift in my Will to Jewish Care if I use the Service? 

Many people who use the Service choose to leave us a legacy but there is no obligation to do so. However, a gift of any size will help us ensure we can continue to deliver high quality care to vulnerable members of our community and their families for years to come. 

“I had been thinking about writing a will for a long time but had put it off. Yet the process was simple and easy and my Will was drawn up after meeting the solicitor, giving me peace of mind. I chose to include a gift to Jewish Care but felt no pressure to do so. My advice to others would be don’t delay this important decision as it’s stress-free and easy to arrange”.
