Leaving a legacy to ORT UK is a great way of ensuring that your commitment to Jewish education continues after your death. You can direct your legacy towards a specific country, or region, or ask that it be used where it is most urgently needed.

All legacy donations are free from inheritance tax.

Legacies form a vital part of ORT UK’s income. Like major donations, they can be focused on a particular project or area, or general. Unlike regular donations, however, legacies often have a lag-time of many years between pledge and receipt. As a result, we strongly encourage donors to make their legacy donations general, allowing ORT UK to direct the funds, when received, to the areas of most urgent need at that point.
Donors leaving over £5,000 in their wills will be listed as Legacy Patrons of ORT UK for the five years following their gift.

Legacies can be an extremely tax-efficient means of supporting the work of ORT UK.

Our Legacy Patrons:

  • The late Edith Greenwood
  • The late Elsbeth Halter
  • The late Katarina Hannan
  • The late Gerrard Hine
  • The late Tamar Rose
  • The late Jack Sachs
  • The late Michael Shapiro

  • Meet Daniel, Shachar and Olga from the Kfar Hassidim school. these three young Israelis will receive their education thanks to ORT and will be the next generation of computer programmers, paramedics and mechanical engineers. In the words of Olga who is studying computer science and physics, "I want to be a computer programmer in the future. There were hardly any computers in the school two years ago but now in our new science lab the teachers help me achieve my dreams. I came from a difficult family background and being in the boarding school has helped me to turn my life around and focus on my studies. Thank you for everything you have done for me and my friends at this school."
  • Hodaya and Yasmin both dream of becoming doctors. Luckily, they're studying at the World ORT Kadima Mada Kfar Silver school near Ashkelon, Israel, which thanks to YOUR support, has brand new chemistry labs. No wonder it's their favourite lesson! "When we first came, the paint was coming off the walls and chairs were broken. The new classrooms help us learn better, because the teachers have better facilities and the room is more comfortable, making it easier to concentrate in class." It's all part of our long-term project to renovate the entire campus. http://ortuk.org/projects/current/educating-israels-most-vulnerable-students
