Ways to donate

There are various ways in which you can donate to Jami. Please use the drop down menu below to choose how you would like to make a donation. Thank you for your support.

Setting up Payroll Giving is quick and easy. We’ll use the details to help your employer set up your gift.

Payroll Giving is a smart and easy way to give straight from your pay.

By giving from your salary each payday, you will be helping us provide our vital services to those experiencing mental health issues. Your regular donations are valuable because they help us budget effectively and plan ahead. 

Payroll Giving donations cost you at least 25% less as they’re taken from your pre-tax pay – it’s the most efficient way to give.

Payroll Giving is only available for salaried PAYE employees.

Giving through your payroll is very tax effective because donations are deducted before you pay tax. For example, if you donate £10, only £8 comes out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest.

To set up payroll giving, please speak to your employer. Thank you for your support.

If you are able to become a committed giver, you will make an enormous difference to our work.

Giving a regular, monthly donation to Jami by direct debit or standing order helps us strengthen our commitment to those experiencing mental health issues in our community.

Guaranteed regular income really does transform what we can achieve. It means that we can plan ahead effectively and remain flexible and independent.

With your continuing support, we will never have to turn away anyone who needs our help.

To set a regular donation, please visit our donate page and choose “set up a monthly donation”.

As a gift to you to mark a celebration or occasion, ask friends and family to make a donation to Jami as an alternative to receiving a gift.

Each donor will be contacted and thanked for their donation and when the date of your celebration arrives we will notify you of who has made a donation and send you a certificate with the total amount raised.

To find out more about setting up donations for your celebration, please call Emma Nagli on 020 8458 2223 or email emma.nagli@jamiuk.org.

A will is an important way of planning for the needs of your family and loved ones. Once you have considered their needs, many people also leave gifts to charities in their wills, which are known as legacies. It is possible to write your own will, but it is best to get a solicitor to do it.

Leaving a Gift to Jami in your will, whether large or small, can help ensure that support is there for those struggling with mental ill health. Leaving a legacy to Jami will demonstrate that you care for the wellbeing of our wider community now and for the future.

Jami is 98% voluntary funded and therefore almost totally reliant on the generosity of our supporters to ensure we can continue to deliver vital services to the 1,200 people who rely on Jami each year, as well as educating the whole community about the importance of mental health and wellbeing. All types of donation, 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 main options for making 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.

Reversionary bequest
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.

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.
