The Charity Bank has been re-awarded Ethical Accreditation from The Ethical Company Organisation and maintains their position as the top-scoring bank for ethics in the latest the Banks & Building Societies research on The Good Shopping Guide.

The Charity Bank is an ethical bank which uses its savers’ money to lend to charities and social enterprises. The bank was founded to support charities with loans that they couldn’t find elsewhere and to show people how their savings could be invested ethically in ways that would make them happy. They lend to organisations where the loan is being used for a social purpose – like building affordable homes, launching community projects or helping disadvantaged young people find employment.

Every year, The Charity Bank runs a campaign called Follow the Money to challenge businesses, charities and individuals to ask themselves where their money is going and encourage them to move their savings to an ethical home where they can be sure it is doing good. This year, the campaign involved sending a documentary photographer to visit 38 Charity Bank borrowers between September and October, to give an insight into how Charity Bank is using its savers’ money to help its borrowers improve lives. Highlights from the 2018 campaign can be found here:

The Charity Bank has attained continuous Ethical Accreditation for the last 11 years, a reflection of the company’s ongoing commitment to ethics.
