Change lives. Donate today.
Your donation will directly benefit someone living with mental illness in the Jewish Community.
More ways to give:
A regular donation through payroll helps people get the support they need and is also very tax efficient. Donations are deducted before tax e.g. if you donate £10, £8 comes from your salary and the taxman pays the rest.
To set up Payroll Giving, please contact your employer.
Leaving a gift in your will is an incredible statement that will have a lasting impact on people’s lives
Jami is 98% voluntary funded and almost totally reliant on the generosity of our supporters to ensure we can continue to deliver our vital services. All donations, including legacies, make a huge difference to our ability to support as many people as possible with their recovery from mental illness.
There are several options for leaving a gift in your will:
A percentage of the net value of the estate (Residuary bequest)
The remainder of your estate after all your other wishes have been carried out and all expenses relating to your estate have been met. Generally, this kind of gift is of the greatest benefit to a charity as its value increases in line with the value of your estate.
A fixed sum of money (Pecuniary bequest)
A fixed sum of money. The value of pecuniary legacies will decrease over time as a result of inflation.
Individual possessions (Specific bequest)
This could be anything, but is often land, property or shares. Your solicitor will be able to advise you on further on these types of gifts.
Where you give a friend or family member a life interest in your estate and after their death the remainder of your estate is made over to a charity or other beneficiary. This allows you to take care of those close to you for the remainder of their lifetime.
It is possible to write your own will, but it is best to get a solicitor to do it. If you have already made a will but now want to leave a legacy to a charity, you can make an addition or change it without rewriting your current will. This addition is called a codicil and a solicitor can advise how to add this to an existing will.
