AAC launches new Gibraltar Branch

We are delighted to announce the launch of AAC Gibraltar.

AAC Gibraltar will enable the local Jewish community to maximise its charitable giving whilst benefiting local community organisations.

For over 40 years, we have helped people to give charity more efficiently and easily, while donating all profits to Jewish educational institutions, whether in the UK, Israel or around the World.

Last year, we managed over £50 million in donations from the Jewish community. We also offer an innovative service, with a technological offering similar to a bank, with easy-to-use online accounts, and even a smartphone app. The Gibraltar community will now benefit from the same capabilities.

Our platform provides easy-to-digest information regarding a donors’ charitable affairs, tax returns and Gift Aid.

The new service offering was launched on Monday evening 13 February at an event in the Leanse Hall in the storied Gibraltar Hebrew Primary School, which was founded in 1898.

During the evening there was a presentation given by AAC Gibraltar Chair Moshe Benady on the importance of Tzedakah and the impact it has on Jewish communities internationally. Moshe Benady, who will head the team of volunteers leading AAC Gibraltar, outlined the benefits of the platform and how the not-for-profit model differentiates the service from other charity accounts.

AAC Gibraltar will significantly simplify the preparation of the gift aid applications, whilst maintaining watertight compliance. AAC Gibraltar members will be able to use the platform inside and outside Gibraltar to support good causes all around the world.

James Levy CBE KC, President of the Gibraltar Jewish Community, said, “AAC will revolutionise the way our community gives and benefits from Tzedakah. AAC will provide an additional way for members of the community to contribute to the community whilst donating to the charitable causes they support and simplify the process.”

Moshe Benady, Chair of AAC Gibraltar, said: “Jewish communities have benefited hugely from AAC across the UK, and I am delighted that it will now be available to the Gibraltar community.”

Matti Fruhman, our CEO, said, “With over 40 years of experience in managing and enhancing charitable giving in the Jewish community, we are delighted to bring our platform to Gibraltar, to take the philanthropy of this very special community to the next level.”
