We are Charities Aid Foundation. A charity dedicated to making philanthropy more effective and helping charities be more successful.

We’re trusted to manage nearly £3 billion, on behalf of charities and donors worldwide, and last year we passed more than £420 million to charities, transforming lives and communities around the world.

We’re passionate about helping donors make a bigger difference, combining our expertise and services to help make giving better for everyone.

And because we operate globally, we can harness local knowledge to support more effective giving. Our 90 year track record means we understand charities and are committed to supporting them.

So whatever your goal, we can help you get there. Talk to us today and find out how you can get the best from your giving.

Our mission is to motivate society to give ever more effectively, helping to transform lives and communities around the world.

We help people and businesses support the causes they care about, and for charities, we provide simple and straightforward day-to-day banking and fundraising services, freeing them up to concentrate on the real work of making a difference.

For 90 years, we’ve found the most effective and efficient ways to connect donors to the causes that matter to them and for money to get where it’s needed.

As a charity, making an impact in the charitable sector is what drives us. That's why we have spearheaded many of the changes that make the UK one of the best giving environments in the world.
