BRAC UK
Organisation

Founded in Bangladesh and now working in eleven countries, we are by some measures the largest non-governmental organisation in the world, an innovator in poverty eradication and a social enterprise offering sustainable pathways out of poverty. Demonstrating the power of a holistic, community-based approach and best known for the scale of our programmes we have created opportunities for 135 million people, mostly women, to create lasting change.

Poor communities are crucial actors and change makers in development and not passive recipients of aid. Working together we design programmes that promote social inclusion through microfinance, education, healthcare, agriculture, livelihood support, legal aid services, community empowerment and profit making social enterprises which feedback into development and take a triple bottom line approach.

BRAC UK works as part of the international BRAC family to raise awareness and funds for our low cost, high impact approach. Developing partnerships in Europe with non-governmental organisations, academics, research institutes, the private sector and governments.

Charity Bank
Organisation

Charity Bank is a savings and loans bank with a mission to use money for good. We use the money our savers entrust to us to make loans to charities, social enterprises and organisations with charitable purposes.

We’ve approved loans of over £240 million to charities and social enterprises across the UK, and 100% of our borrowers would recommend us.

We're entirely owned by charitable foundations, trusts and social purpose organisations. Our non-executive directors are unpaid and we do not operate a staff bonus scheme, so when we say we’re an ethical bank, we mean it.

For charitable organisations considering loan finance, we offer sector expertise, a deep interest in what you do and a team of regional managers there to work with you side-by-side.

You can apply for loans from £50,000 to £2.5 million, up to £3.25 million if you are a registered social housing provider and more in partnership with other lenders. Our mission is to support your mission.

For individuals or organisations looking to save or deposit, your money can be a powerful force for good. You can open a Charity Bank account that will earn you a fair return and support the extraordinary work of the charities and social enterprises we lend to across the UK.

With us your savings become part of a social mission: they might be used to build affordable homes, launch renewable energy projects or support disadvantaged young people.
