Every gift makes a difference 

Jewish Care is Australia’s largest Jewish humanitarian organisation. Our strong history of supporting the vulnerable reflects our values of kindness, compassion and social responsibility.

Remembering Jewish Care in your will is a thoughtful act of generosity. It gives you the satisfaction of knowing that you are touching the lives of hundreds of Jewish families and individuals now and into the future.

How your gift can help:

Gifts in wills are set aside and carefully managed so that future generations will benefit for years to come.

Have you told us of your intentions to include a gift in your will?

By including a gift in your will, you set an important example. Of course, you may wish to keep your intentions private and confidential. However, we hope that you will share your intentions with us so that we can acknowledge your thoughtfulness.
