CAF (Charities Aid Foundation)

We’ve been committed to supporting non-profit organisations for over 90 years, helping them achieve their goals.

We’re a charity ourselves and we understand the pressures that you face as a leader in the sector. We know that generating income and achieving financial sustainability is one of the most pressing challenges facing charity leaders.

Here are some of the ways we can help you manage this:

CAF Investment account

Our award-winning CAF Investment Account is the UK’s only secure, digital trading platform for charities. It is a key element of the new Charity Investment Hub that creates a single destination for charities who invest.

The Hub is comprised of three separate pillars: Learn, Try and Grow. Charities can learn the basics in the investment knowledge centre, dip their toes in the water by trying the free Investment Explorer tool, essentially a “try before you buy” simulator, and grow their investments with products specifically developed for charities by investment professionals.

Charity advisory service

We work with charity leaders and trustees to help their organisations become financially sustainable and resilient. We offer a broad range of expertise drawn from CAF’s work with charities, companies, major donors, and our research into charitable giving and philanthropy.

We work with charities by:

  • Helping them to draw up plans to diversify income.
  • Transforming their ideas into strategies that will produce results over the long-term.
  • Advising them on governance and impact.

Secured and unsecured loans

Sometimes charities need a loan to achieve its goals. We provide secured loads of between £50,000 and £5 million through our bank, CAF Bank.

We can also support your growth or cash flow needs via CAF Venturesome, our social investment fund. These loans are unsecured and can be an affordable, flexible source of finance, where other lenders may be unable to help.

Donation tools and advice

CAF Donate, our online donation platform, makes it easy for your charity to collect and manage online and offline donations. You get branded online donation pages, there are no sign up or monthly fees and we automatically claim Gift Aid on your behalf.

Whatever your goals are, we’re determined to help your charity succeed. Visit our website today and get in touch.
