Giving to charity

DONATING OVERSEAS

We can help you to donate to your favourite charitable causes, around the world. Global giving is easier with CAF.

HOW CAN I DONATE OVERSEAS?

When you donate overseas, you want to be confident that your gift is going to a valid charitable project and that the money will be sent securely and used properly. There are two ways we can help you give money to international causes:

GIVE THROUGH YOUR CAF CHARITY ACCOUNT OR CAF CHARITABLE TRUST

Our network of international offices makes it easy to donate to charitable organisations around the world.

Complete an overseas donation request for the charity you want to donate to. We’ll validate the charity for you, to make sure your donation is going to legitimate project, and arrange for your donation to be paid to them.

The minimum donation to an overseas organisation is £250. Fees may be applicable for international donations from a CAF Charity Account. Please see the fee schedule for more detail.

DON’T HAVE A CAF CHARITY ACCOUNT OR CAF CHARITABLE TRUST?

CAF Charity Account

Take complete control over your everyday giving by choosing how and when you support the causes you care about. It’s simple, smart and stress-free. And if you’d rather not have charities contacting you, you can even give anonymously.

CAF Charitable Trust

If you have more than £10,000 to give, a CAF Charitable Trust is the most flexible way to give to one – or many – causes. It’s easy to manage and designed to give you peace of mind and maximum impact.

GIVE THROUGH TRANSNATIONAL GIVING EUROPE

If the country you live in is a member of Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) you can make a donation to a charitable organisation in another member country, and take advantage of any tax relief in your country of residence.

A fee will be deducted from your donations: 5% up to 50,000 Euros and 1% above this. This is capped at a maximum fee of 6,500 Euros.

To find out which countries take part, visit the Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) website.
