If you have a vision, a charity loan could help make it a reality. We take a flexible and responsible approach to lending. Share your ideas, and we’ll help you choose what you can afford to borrow and how long you need to repay it.
You'll have a named relationship manager to contact directly when you need to speak to someone. They’ll understand your organisation, and the challenges you face.
We’ve supported Charities and Businesses for over 130 years and we prioritise business lending to organisations that deliver positive social impact, so you’ll be joining a group of like-minded people.
