Building charity resilience - together

Serving charities so that they can thrive lies at the heart of what we do at Charities Aid Foundation. We understand the financial challenges charities and not-for-profit enterprises can face. That’s why our bespoke advisory services, funding and finance solutions aim to strengthen their long-term resilience amid a rapidly changing charity landscape.

We also work collaboratively to amplify the voice of the charitable and non-profit sector through our research and public affairs and policy work, helping to inform and shape the environment in the UK and around the world.
