How does it work?

The freedom to give,
how and when you choose

Giving, on your terms

With a CAF Charity Account, you can put money aside to donate to any charity, at any time, so there’s money there for when it’s needed most.

You can decide how and when you choose to support the causes you care about, for example making a one-off donation to a major emergency appeal, sponsoring friends and family or making regular donations to help charities close to your heart.

Open a CAF Charity Account with a minimum of £10 each month for one year, or a one-off payment of £100.

How to set up a CAF Charity Account

Opening a CAF Charity Account is easy – you just need to fill out our application form. Please note that you must fund your account with either a monthly payment of at least £10 or a one-off donation of £100. Once the money is in your CAF Charity Account it can’t be refunded.

You can choose to remain anonymous, so you’re not contacted further by the charities you’re giving to. Otherwise, you can give them your details if you’d like to know more. Please make sure you read the Terms and conditions thoroughly before opening an account.

As a charity ourselves, we keep our fees to a minimum. We deduct a small contribution of 4% for payments in to your CAF Charity Account, up to the value of £20,500 (calculated annually). For sums over £20,500.01, this fee is reduced to 1%.
