SUPPORT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WITH YOUR CAF CHARITY ACCOUNT

Thanks to the digital world, supporting friends and family in their charitable endeavours is easier than ever. Gone are the days of signing sponsors up in person via a paper form - these days it takes just minutes to create a dedicated sponsorship webpage for a specific fundraising event, and only a few more to share it with all your connections on social media.

As a result, you may be asked to sponsor people in your social network on a regular basis, which can make for a considerable amount of time spent filling in online forms in order to donate to their chosen causes.

With this in mind, we’ve created the CAF Charity Account, a one-stop shop through which you can manage all of your charitable giving. Designed to make donating to charity simple, convenient and effective, you can pay money into your account though one-off payments, straight from your salary or via a Direct Debit plan, allowing you to use the funds you’ve saved to make donations whenever you like.

Log into your CAF Charity Account at any time to check your balance and fill in your details just once for efficient donating. Plus, if you’re a UK taxpayer, just one Gift Aid declaration will allow us to add an automatic 25p to every £1 you give.

The CAF Charity Account includes other clever features that make sponsoring friends and family quick, easy and secure, and could revolutionise the way you support them and your favourite charities.

SPONSORSHIP USING CAF CHARITY VOUCHERS

When you set up a CAF Charity Account, you’ll have the option to receive a CAF Charity Voucher Book. Each voucher can be made out to any charity you want to support, including your loved ones’ chosen causes. Your Voucher Book can be personalised with your name, or if you prefer, can be left blank so that you can make donations anonymously.

To use CAF Charity Vouchers to sponsor your friends and family, simply complete a new voucher with the details of their chosen charity and the amount you want to give. They’ll need to send the voucher onto the charity they’re collecting for, who will be able to process your donation from your CAF Charity Account swiftly and securely.

CAF Charity Vouchers are also perfect for donating to door-to-door collections, charity boxes or any campaign to which you might traditionally donate cash.

SPONSORING FRIENDS AND FAMILY THROUGH THE CAF WEBSITE

If you want to sponsor someone who lives a long way away, a CAF Charity Voucher probably won’t be the easiest way to do so. With such a huge array of global charities represented, you’ll be able to back your friends and family in their fundraising through your online CAF Charity Account no matter who they have chosen to support.

It’s quick and easy to log in to your account and make a secure donation to a friend’s charity of choice in just a few clicks, without having to re-enter your details. Simply donate to your friend’s chosen charity and tick ‘I’m sponsoring a friend’. They’ll receive an email about your donation so they can add it to their offline fundraising total.

MAKING A SPONSORSHIP DONATION VIA OTHER CHARITY WEBSITES

A huge amount of the charities we work with use CAF Donate, a handy online system that allows you to give from your CAF Charity Account on the charity’s own websites.

Rather than filling in all your personal data to make an online donation, you’ll be able to enter your login details, select your donation amount and the charity will take your gift directly from your CAF Charity Account, complete with Gift Aid. If your favourite charity doesn’t let you donate on their website, let them know about CAF Donate.
