Youth Aliyah Child Rescue operates entirely by voluntary funding. We are fully reliant on the generosity of our donors, fundraisers, volunteers and event participants to raise the money that is so vital in enabling our youth villages and programmes to run. We can only continue to support thousands of at risk children and young people in Israel with your involvement.
There are many ways that you can get involved with Youth Aliyah Child Rescue and some of these are below:
Leave a legacy
Our villages are home to 2,000 vulnerable children rescued from unsafe homes, but the number of at risk children in Israel needing our help is growing at a frightening pace. Your legacy gift helps ensure that we can be there for those that desperately need us long after you are gone. Leaving a legacy is a meaningful way for your memory to live on and to know that you are enabling the best care and support for traumatised children and those with fewer opportunities to succeed.
Fundraise for us
Youth Aliyah Child Rescue will proudly and actively support you in your fundraising activities. Perhaps you would like to run for us in the London Marathon or take part in other mass participation events; perhaps you would like to host a coffee morning, bake sale or parlour evening; maybe you’d be prepared to jump out of a plane or ride up a perilous mountain in support of vulnerable children and their uphill struggles!
We are always on the lookout for people to join or form a fundraising committee as well.
Attend an event
Youth Aliyah Child Rescue organises exciting and inspiring events throughout the year and welcome you to attend. Perhaps you can even bring others along with you!
Alternatively, you may prefer to plan an event for your friends and family, and we’d be delighted to help you. If this is something that you might be interested in, please contact Nicola Gold on 020 8371 1580 or get in touch by clicking here.
Bar/bat mitzvah celebrations
As part of their bar and bat mitzvah preparations, many young people choose to raise money for a charitable cause. Youth Aliyah Child Rescue provides a great opportunity for young people to give back to their peers, to children not as fortunate as themselves. Some bar and bat mitzvah celebrants opt to fundraise in one way or another, whilst others make a donation from the gifts they receive in celebration of their simcha.
Money raised can be put towards the annual simchas and parties we put on for children in our villages when they reach bar and bat mitzvah age. Alternatively, donations could be made for specific items that reflect the interests of the bar and bat mitzvah celebrant in the UK – for example children who love sports might want to raise money for sports equipment, artists for art equipment, musicians for instruments etc. This is a great way to make the donations meaningful and relevant to the bar and bat mitzvah celebrants.
