Jewish Charities in the UK and abroad rely on gifts in Wills to continue their vital work.

Jewish Legacy has 46 cross communal charity partners, all working together to highlight the importance of legacy giving.

Jewish Legacy was formed 5 years ago and, since that date, has worked as a partnership to inform the Jewish community about its importance and, at the same time,
challenge current perceptions about legacy giving. Legacy giving applies to all ages and levels of income and, whilst we realise that friends and family are obviously a priority, leaving a gift to a cause that is important to you, doesn’t need to affect the gifts you leave to them. 

While the Jewish community is known for its generosity, only 25% (one in four members) of the community leave a charitable Legacy in their
Will, compared to 75% who give during their lifetime.

We, at Jewish Legacy, would like to improve that statistic.
