Charity investment funds that work for you 

It takes expertise to truly understand how charities and social enterprises operate. At CAF, we’re not just familiar with the challenges you face – we’re a charity too.

We know first-hand how much work has gone into building your organisation, from the day-to-day tasks to the round-the-clock commitment. We also know that what suits one charity investor may not suit another. That’s why we offer choice. It’s also why our consultation sessions are designed to help you make the most of your charity’s or social enterprises' funds. It’s our way of helping you amplify the power of good. 

We have over 30 years’ experience helping charities to manage their investments and make the most of their funds. We're here to help you navigate investment options that are right for you.
