Loans: borrow to support your mission

You can borrow from a bank that understands your charitable goals as well as your finances. We 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 £3.25 million 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 and an ethical Cash ISA. Join the ethical banking movement.
