The Singer family established the charity, the Jeremy Singer Charitable Trust, in memory of their son Jeremy Singer, who sadly passed away in 2012 at the age of 37. The Trust promotes educational opportunities for underprivileged young people at university level. It aims to help disadvantaged students succeed in life by providing them with the resources to make the most of their time at university.

A fundraising concert, in collaboration with Brasenose College, Oxford, is being presented at Wigmore Hall on Saturday 29 June 2024 with a recital from pianist Evgeny Kissin. Kissin is in fact, Jeremy Singer's cousin and has fond memories of Jeremy.

Jeremy Singer read History at Brasenose College and the Trust intends to fund bursaries at the college, the recipients will be known as ‘Jeremy Singer Scholars’ and an annual dinner will be given by the College for the present and past scholars. 

Evgeny Kissin's recital on 29 June at Wigmore Hall will feature Beethoven's Piano Sonata No 27, Chopin's Nocturne, Op 48 No 2 and Fantaisie, Op 49, Brahms' Four Ballades, Op 10 and Prokofiev Piano Sonata No 2. Evgeny Kissin is generously donating his performance and afterwards he will be joining everyone for a post-performance champagne reception and light supper.
