As we're entering the High Holiday season, here at Chabad Islington we're planning a whole range of events to celebrate the Jewish New Year: from Rosh Hashanah dinners and public Shofar Blowing, to Yom Kippur services, kids' activities, Sukkot dinners, and more. You can browse the calendar of events now.

However, holding High Holiday events is expensive, and although we do our best to subsidise tickets, we know that the costs of running them will be quite high and would love to open the sponsorship opportunities to the public. That’s why I’m running the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 8 October 2017, to help make our carnival possible for anyone who wants to join.

You could pay for all the apples on Rosh Hashana for just £5

You could pay for all the honey on Rosh Hashana at a bargain price of £10

You could subsidise the ticket for one student or person on a low income for £25

You could enable us to subsidise two tickets by sponsoring me at £50

You could subsidise four tickets for £100

Legacies – Planned Giving

Legacies – Planned Giving
Your generosity to Chabad-Lubavitch of Islington will enable us to continue to provide vital community services for many years to come. You can include a bequest to Chabad Islington when making a new will or add one to a will you have already made in a supplementary document or codicil.

Making a difference in our future
Chabad Islington exists because of the help of members of our Jewish community. That is why your collaboration is so important to the continuation of our work for the next generations. Therefore, we are now working together with a local Islington solicitor, Graeme Taylor, who is a Senior Partner at Gelbers Solicitors, to help you plan and prepare your contribution to us. By making your will, Graeme can do the solicitor work for a reduced rate and make it easier for you to plan your donation to our institution when including Chabad Islington as a beneficiary. This gives you the opportunity to arrange your donation without interfering in your life today, but with the certainty that you will leave a wonderful legacy for our future.

Why making a will?
It’s the best way of ensuring that your property goes to those individuals and causes you really intend to benefit. If there is no valid will the property you leave behind will be dealt with in accordance with the rules of intestacy. This could well be contrary to your wishes and not in the best interests of your family and dependents. In addition, the Chancellor of the Exchequer could become one of your principal beneficiaries.

By adding us in your will you can ensure your support to our future and this generosity will enable us to continue with our work and services for many years to come. This means you will leave a lasting legacy and have the satisfaction of supporting Chabad Islington and its future. This is a gratifying and easy way of making a difference in the future of our Jewish community. In addition, it not only may save inheritance tax, but it can also guarantee your support beyond your lifetime.

Often people feel that they do not have the means during their lifetime to help others as much as they would like. However, by making a gift in your Will (through the distribution of your assets), you can make a difference tomorrow without affecting your quality of life today.

Some options for including a bequest in your will

  • Leave a proportion of your estate to Chabad Islington (this means that your gift will not be affected by fluctuations in the size of your estate).
  • Include a residuary clause in your Will, in order to dispose of any assets not otherwise mentioned, or leave a percentage of that residue to Chabad Islington.
  • Nominate a specific sum of money you wish to donate to Chabad Islington.
  • Establish a provision so that if any named beneficiary cannot accept their bequest it will go to Chabad Islington instead.
  • Establish a perpetual trust that would provide ongoing financial support for years (please contact your legal adviser should you wish to discuss this option)
  • Life insurance - all or part of your insurance policy can be gifted
Gift Aid

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid gives you an extra 25p for every £1 you donate.

Gift Aid is an income tax relief designed to benefit charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASC). If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by 25% because the charity can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift at no extra cost to you.

How does Gift Aid work?

The process is really simple; all you need to do is fill out a Gift Aid Declaration form. This is a statement from you to the charity confirming that you want to donate through Gift Aid and receive tax back on your donation. Charities don’t pay tax on most types of income, which is why the tax paid on financial gifts to charity can be claimed back.

Your donations won’t qualify for Gift Aid if they are more than four times what you’ve paid in tax that tax year. If you stop paying enough tax at any point, you must let the charity you’re donating to know.

Am I eligible for Gift Aid?

For a charity to claim Gift Aid on your donation you must first have paid UK Income or Capital Gains Tax that financial year. The tax you pay must be equivalent to the amount of Gift Aid the charity will reclaim on your donation that tax year, (and will be claimed by other charities and CASCs). VAT and Council Tax do not meet this criteria.

From April 2016, the income tax personal allowance has increased to £11,000 for individuals born after 5 April 1948. If your income is below £11,000, you will no longer be able to claim Gift Aid on eligible donations.
