FUNDING YOUR PLANS

We could help your charity or social enterprise fund your plans, so you can make a bigger impact.

Ways we can help

We help charities and social enterprises fund wonderful projects around the world. Plus we're a charity too, which means we're perfectly placed to understand your needs.

Loans to fund your projects

Borrowing is one way of funding your projects and achieving your goals more quickly than through fundraising alone. 

CAF Bank offers flexible loans, exclusively to UK-registered charities and not-for-profit organisations, to bring your ideas to life.
