Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) produces free guide to borrowing for charities

The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) for charities has produced a FREE guide to loans for charities, although please note that registration is required before the report can be downloaded.

The guide is called “Financing the Future“.

Repayable finance is one way to advance your organisation’s goals and make a bigger difference for the communities who turn to you for support. 

A loan could open the door to buy land and a new property, develop new income streams, and finance ongoing projects – in a timeframe that fundraising would struggle to achieve alone.

The guide offers plenty of expert insight, including:

o Stories of charities who used loan finance to amplify the power of good.
o A clear summary of different types of repayable finance, and
o Tips on what lenders look for and how to make your business case.

The report. “Financing the Future“, is available on the CAF website, following registration. Please note that you don’t necessarily need to be a charity to receive a copy the report.
