Charity Bank

OverviewSuggest Edit

Charity Bank is a savings and loans bank with a mission to use money for good. We use our savers’ money to make loans to organisations with charitable purposes.

We're entirely owned by charitable foundations, trusts and social purpose organisations. Our non-executive directors are unpaid and we do not operate a staff bonus scheme, so when we say we’re an ethical bank, we mean it.

We’ve lent over £140 million to charities and social enterprises from across the UK, and 100% of our borrowers would recommend us.
