Considering repayable finance for your charity?

Many charities and social enterprises have successfully delivered growth projects or accelerated major plans to benefit their service users, with financial support. Could you achieve more by borrowing money or with a blended finance package of a grant and loan?

The world of borrowing can be a minefield: complex offerings, financial jargon, high street banks vs specialist charity lenders. For many, the opportunity to secure funding is often dismissed too soon.

Our charity finance resources aim to help to provide clarity, providing the questions you need to consider to find the best route for your organisation, and ultimately, for your beneficiaries.
