The Financial Resources of the UK Jewish Voluntary Sector

By Peter Halfpenny, Margaret Reid

Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), 2000

This report looks at the income of the Jewish voluntary sector from all its funding streams in addition to comparing the information with similar data about the overall UK charitable sector. The report finds that the average income per organization is £250,000 pounds but this figure is influenced by a small number of high-income organizations. In terms of distribution of the sector's total income across different types of beneficiaries, organizations whose beneficiaries include individuals such as the elderly or children comprise the largest proportion of organizations, which is followed by institutions and environment. This group also raises by far the highest proportion of the sector's total income. The report also finds that the bulk of current annual expenditures are by the organizations with the largest incomes. The report also finds that Jewish voluntary sector raises its income in a very similar proportion to the UK Voluntary sector as a whole. However the Jewish sector raises more of its total income from individual persons than the UK sector as a whole.
