We welcome and will greatly appreciate your financial support.

Here is how to support EJCC.

The Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation and our SCIO number is SC048275. 

If you are a UK citizen who is employed in the UK your gift may be eligible for gift aid. This means that your gift will be matched by the UK government at the rate of 25%. If applicable, follow instructions on our Charities Aid Foundation Page.

Donors to the Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre will receive regular email updates regarding our progress and be invited to our pre-opening social events and educational activities and major donors shall be recognised in perpetuity within the new Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre building.


If that is not possible, you may also make your donation through a bank transfer.

Please contact for bank details.


If you are a US donor you are entitled to receive a full tax benefit by donating through our partner foundation, the British Schools and Universities Foundation.

Note: If your gift is $1000.00 or larger please consider using a check or bank transfer so that the Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre shall receive 100% of your gift. If you use the credit card option, the bank will deduct 3% for their transaction fee.

To have a confidential discussion regarding making a major gift of treasure (such as cash, stocks, property, legacy planning or other ideas) or with any queries, please contact in the first instance. 


A legacy gift from your future estate could help with your inheritance tax planning as well as provide critical funds for the establishment and operations of EJCC. To discuss this opportunity please contact in the first instance.
