  • How can we receive our donations via BACs?

    We want to get your donations to you as quickly as possible, if you send us your bank details we can send them to you through BACs. You can do this easily by sending us the voucher(s) in the post along with your proof of account, which needs to meet the following requirements:

    • - a copy of your organisation's bank account statement showing most recent transactions, with no redactions
    • - the copy of the statement needs to be dated within the last 3 months
    • - the statement shows clearly the name the bank account is held in, the sort code and account number
    • - the postal address for the charity (if this differs to your registered address please provide us with an explanation so not to cause unnecessary delays)

    By requesting proof, we can abide by UK anti money laundering rules and help us minimize any risk to you and your donors.  

    Once we have this information we can send you your donations through BACs.

     
  • Why do I have to sign up to CAF Charity Dashboard before I can use CAF Donate?

    Making sure your donations get to your charity safely and securely is our utmost priority.
    So as part of our due diligence, signing up to CAF Charity Dashboard is the first step in our verification process. Upgrading to CAF Donate is the second step.

  • Why do I need to provide details of my charity’s Trustees for CAF Donate?
    As well as being a registered charity, CAF is also registered for anti-money laundering purposes.

    This means that we need to take a few more steps with our due diligence process – and in the case of CAF Donate, this means asking you for the full names, addresses and dates of birth for all your trustees. 

    It might seem like a pain now but it does mean that you can be reassured that we are extremely scrupulous in all our interactions with you and is why CAF is trusted by charities and donors alike.
  • Why should I sign up for CAF Donate if I can send vouchers to you for processing?
    If your charity receives several CAF Charity Voucher donations, you can get these in your bank account quicker.

    Donations will appear in your account within 2-3 days using CAF Donate, rather than 2-3 weeks if you were to send them to us for processing. Plus, you can save on postage costs.
