Celebrating charity achievements for more than a decade

At CAF we're all about making giving count. And everything we do for charities is to help you be at your best so you can have a bigger impact.

That's why in our 15th year of sponsorship, we're looking forward to another year of recognising amazing people like you and the work your charities do by sponsoring the Charity Awards

"CAF exists to support the amazing wealth of charitable endeavour across this country and around the world, and it is always humbling to see the great work being done by people in so many ways. These awards show charities at their very best, working to support people in communities around the country in myriad different ways at a time of continuing economic uncertainty. Celebrating that success is a massively important part of maintaining and building the culture of generosity in Britain, of which we should be so proud."

Sir John Low, CEO of CAF 

This year we'll be sponsoring the Grantmaking and funding award. So if you're proud of your charity's achievements, send your entry before 22 February to get the recognition you deserve.  

CAF are proud sponsors of The Grantmaking and Funding award at The Charity Awards 2019

Helping make your charity's vision a reality


"It felt very much like we had exposed our charity and turned it inside out. So, year one had to deal with these issues, but also led to a very outward-looking year two, which has taken us in a bigger and brighter direction than I had originally envisaged."

Winning the GSK Impact Award, charity manager, Jo, tells us about the transformational work WILD Young Parents' Project has undergone with the support of our advisory team.

"We realised we'd need a commercial loan to give us the confidence to give the go ahead to start building work. Our first port of call was our bankers, one of which was CAF Bank. We liked their supportive approach to the project, so when we received their offer of finance, we were able to press the button”.

St John's Church celebrated its 200th anniversary by opening an upgraded and expanded community hub, with the help of a CAF Bank loan.
