OUR APPROACH

We provide comprehensive support to the charities and social enterprises we work with throughout the entire process:

  • Hundreds of charities and social enterprises contact us each year.
  • We then conduct detailed due diligence on organisations which meet the criteria, including visiting the organisation and meeting senior management.
  • An independent investment committee approves the finance application.
  • Once finance is provided, we stay in regular contact with the organisation and offer support throughout the lifetime of the loan.

BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH US

  • You select the charitable themes you’d like to support
  • Choose to support organisations working in the UK, internationally or both
  • Peace of mind that we carry out due diligence on each social organisation
  • Receive regular, personalised reports
  • There’s no management fee – we charge an interest rate on our loans that contributes to our operating costs
  • We believe our regular monitoring is one reason our write-off rate is so low.
