Gifts in wills

Leave a gift to JET in your will

Inspiring young people to realise their true potential and to reach for the skies, is Jon Egging’s legacy.

Leaving a gift in your will to JET will enable more young people to build the self-confidence to realise their own dreams. Our support programmes are designed to inspire and nurture vulnerable young people who are struggling to engage at school. Many of our students are facing significant challenges in their young lives, whether they’re looking after a family member as a young carer, grieving the loss of a parent or sibling, overcoming a traumatic experience or struggling at school with special educational needs or a loss of confidence. Through JET’s long-term support programmes, and by learning about teamwork, communication and leadership from the positive role models we link our students to, futures are brightened and career prospects vastly improved.

Change a life forever

Your gift could help future generations to build the resilience and determination needed to succeed.

Your gift to JET

During our lives we all have ongoing financial commitments so it’s sometimes difficult to help others as much as we’d like to. Leaving a gift to JET in your will is an opportunity to give more than you might have been able to during your lifetime, providing hope and inspiration for young people long into the future. Your gift will also remind the loved ones you leave behind of your principles, values and the aspiration to give to others who need encouragement and support.

How to leave a gift in your will to JET

If you wish to leave a gift in your will to JET, you can name the charity as a beneficiary citing: The Jon Egging Trust. Our registered Charity Number is 1156265 and our address is  PO Box 17617, Redditch, B97 9RU.

We recommend you seek the advice of a solicitor first if you wish to leave a gift in your will to JET. If you do not already have a will, there are a variety of organisations that can offer this service for free. Visit the UK government website to find out how to get started.

It can benefit you and your loved ones too

It’s worth considering that anything you leave to a charity is free of inheritance tax, so it can be a useful way to reduce your tax bill while benefiting our good cause. Leaving at least 10% of your estate to charity also cuts down the inheritance tax due on the remainder of your estate. For more advice on how this could affect you, check the HMRC website or speak to your solicitor.
