Products and services
Our community accounts are designed to combine sound business practice with ethical values. When you’re looking after your organisation’s finances, you don’t want your funds to diminish through unnecessary bank charges. That’s why our community accounts give you free banking.
Customer Donation Fund
Since 2003, we've donated nearly £750,000 to 866 organisations. Deadlines for applications are at the end of March and September every year. All Community Directplus account holders can apply for up to £1,000 from the Customer Donation Fund to support special projects and fundraising activities.
About the fund
The fund grows in relation to the deposits made, for every £100 increase in collective deposits across Community Directplus accounts we add 20p to the fund and promise to distribute a minimum of £5,000 twice a year.
How it works
Donations range from £500 – £1,000 and applications are judged twice a year in April and October. If successful, the money will be paid into your bank account shortly after.
How to apply
As long as you're a Community Directplus account holder you simply fill out the application form.
