Join a bank that shares your values

Loans: borrow to support your mission

You can borrow from a bank that understands your charitable goals as well as your finances. We only lend to charities, social enterprises and organisations tackling social and environmental issues and shape our terms and repayment schedules around their needs.

We offer loans to small and large organisations from £50,000 to £2.5 million, up to £3.5 million to housing associations and more in partnership with other lenders.

Savings: put your money where your values are

You can open a savings account that will earn you a fair return and support the extraordinary work of the charities and social enterprises that borrow from us.

Choose from our personal savings accounts, charity and business savings accounts, a children’s savings account and an ethical ISA.

A bit about us

Charity Bank is a savings and loans bank with a mission to use money for good. We use the money our savers entrust to us to make loans to charities, social enterprises and organisations with charitable purposes.

Our community of borrowers, savers, shareholders and staff are all working towards one goal – helping to create lasting social change in our communities.
