Helping charities raise funds with CAF Donate

The Celia Hammond Animal Trust operates in London and the South East to help stray, abandoned and unwanted animals. They're hugely reliant on small regular donations and CAF Donate helps them easily collect these online.

Building development loans from CAF Bank

Originally built in the 1880s, Putney Church’s ageing and underused building was transformed, with the help of a CAF Bank loan of £1.2 million.

The project has helped the church to expand its community programmes that include promoting good mental health, a community café for people who feel isolated, a carers and toddlers group and events for young people.

Ways we can work with you

We own our own bank just for charities, CAF Bank. We can help you raise and manage funds so that you can continue making an impact.

Borrowing from CAF Bank


Borrowing funds is one way of kick-starting your projects and achieving your goals more quickly than through fundraising alone.

In 2018 we loaned more than £90 million to charities across the UK.

The benefits of borrowing

Corporate Giving


Every month 1.9 million Londoners give to charity. Last year more than £10 billion was donated to charities by people in the UK.

Make sure your charity is set up to receive donations online with our platform, CAF Donate.
