  • Easy to manage - we handle all the ongoing administration, leaving you to focus on your charitable giving
  • Enjoy flexible funding - fund your CAF Charitable Trust in a range of ways, offline and online
  • Get full tax benefits - we’ll reclaim and add Gift Aid for every eligible gift made into your CAF Charitable Trust

  • Access to expert advice - our experienced advisors will work with you to achieve your goals
  • Grow your CAF Charitable Trust - through a range of savings and investment options
