Leave a gift in your Will

In honour of the 25th anniversary of the founding of the New Israel Fund in the UK, we are launching a special Legacy Giving Campaign. Funds raised through gifts in wills empower NIF to pursue its mission of strengthening democracy and equality in Israel by enabling us to respond to the urgent issues of the time and plan for the long term so that the vision we share becomes our legacy.

We hope you will join us.

Free Will Offer

We are excited to offer our dedicated supporters a free will writing service during the months of November and December in partnership with Jewish Legacy. For more information or to find out how to access this service please email sj@uknif.org.

Why include NIF in your Will?

For 25 years, the New Israel Fund has championed the vision of an Israel true to our core values of inclusiveness, equality and justice. And against great odds, we are making progress together. In decades ahead, achieving that vision will be NIF’s legacy. Now we ask you to make it part of yours.


Join our Legacy Circle

By becoming a member of NIF’s Legacy Circle you are confirming a commitment to leaving a gift in your will to NIF. You do not need to provide further details on this, nor make a public acknowledgement.
Members of the Legacy Circle will be invited to a series of interesting and bespoke events, and will have the opportunity to get closer to our work and our leadership. We also have exciting plans for Legacy Circle trips to Israel and much more.
To start this important conversation contact Sarah-Jayne Grahame.

Did you know that all of NIF’s funding comes from individuals and voluntary funds? In 2020, £1 in every £10 donated to the work of NIF came from a will. We know in the future that donations left in people’s wills are going to be increasingly important.

What to do next?

Making a Will and leaving a gift in your Will is easier than you may think and is one of the best ways you can help us to change the future for the better. Any gift, whatever its size, really is priceless to us. Gifts to charity are exempt from inheritance tax, and could reduce the amount your family would have to pay. See the example below.

For more information, please contact SJ Grahame on 0207 724 2266 or sj@uknif.org.

Did you know…

No gift is too small. Through legacy giving, every gift will have an impact, every gift will make a difference. You can take care of loved ones and help NIF. There are many types of gifts that enable you to do both. Leaving a gift in your Will is simple. All you need is our charity address:

Star House
104 Grafton Rd
Kentish Town

You can reduce the inheritance tax owed by your family by leaving a gift in your will, benefiting both your family and your chosen charity. Changes to tax laws mean that if you leave 10% of your estate (after your tax-free allowances) to NIF, you can cut the Inheritance Tax rate on the rest of your estate from 40% to 36%. That’s a 4% reduction in the inheritance tax for your family and a huge impact for our work at NIF.

For example, say your estate (after allowances) is worth £250,000, you would be faced with an IHT bill of £100,000. This would leave your family with £150,000. If you gave away 10% to charity – £25,000 – the IHT charge on the remaining estate, now £225,000, would be reduced to £81,000, meaning your family would still inherit £144,000. Your very generous donation of £25,000 to NIF has therefore cost you only £6,000.

We hope you will consider leaving a lasting legacy that ensures your voice is heard by including the New Israel Fund in your Will.
