Charity Bank was always going to be different. What drives us isn’t profits, but a shared idea about the world we want to live in. We were founded to support charities with loans that they couldn’t find elsewhere and to show people how their savings could be invested ethically and in ways that would make them happy.
Today, charities have never been more needed, but also more challenged. That’s why our promise – of supporting charitable activities and helping people to save and do good – is more important than ever.
We take the time to understand the organisations we lend to, we put peoples' money where their values are and together we work to create lasting social change in our communities.
We are an ethical bank for everyone who knows that banks can do better. We are the bank for people who believe that banking should always work for good.
