Stabilise and grow with a loan

The financial resilience of charities and social enterprises has been greatly tested through the pandemic; many have had to adapt to supporting beneficiaries’ changing needs, while facing a shortfall in income to meet growing demand for their services. 

For social purpose organisations looking to stabilise or grow, borrowing money is a potential option that’s often overlooked. So we organised a webinar to help trustees and managers understand the ways that borrowing could help to finance their future goals and the support available through CAF.

Watch this webinar to:

  • Compare the different choices of repayable finance (borrowing) available.
  • Learn when you should consider loan finance or social investment.
  • Find out about the financial support available from CAF Venturesome and CAF Bank.
  • Hear how borrowing helped two charities to stabilise their financial position and achieve more
