Established in 2004, with bases in London, Manchester and Jerusalem, GIFT’s mission is to inspire the next generation to become givers through dynamic education, impactful volunteering and helping those in need.
Our schools programme sees hundreds of thought-provoking and practical sessions run each year that produce thousands of acts of giving. Our B’nei Mitzvah giving sessions are fun, hands-on and educational, teaching giving at a crucial age.
Thousands of hours are given each year by GIFT’s volunteers, helping others through the distribution of over 23,000 food and support packages to disadvantaged households.
GIFT volunteers give respite to families by staying with loved ones in hospital, visiting care homes, tutoring children struggling at school and offering practical support to families who face daily challenges.

In celebration of its 10th anniversary, JVN has recently been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The equivalent of an MBE and the highest honour charities can receive, the Award is given to voluntary organisations deemed to be outstanding in their field.

The League of Jewish Women is a long established charity founded in 1943. Our aims are to give service to the communities we live in, and to give hands-on help where there is a need, irrespective of ethnic grouping, gender or religion. We provide volunteer help in many diverse places such as schools, prisons, hospices and day centres.
We work with other organizations such as Macmillan nurses, Witness and Victim Support and Jewish Care. We are the UK affiliate of the International Council of Jewish Women and therefore have worldwide links, and are also affiliated to other national women’s organizations.
