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 £30,000 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
