For every £100 increase in collective balances held in Community Directplus accounts, we will add 20p to the Customer Donation Fund, with a minimum of £5,000 being awarded twice a year. To date, we have supported over a thousand organisations, with over £935,000 of funding provided to a whole range of projects. In 2020, our Customer Donation Fund contributed almost £100,000 of funding to support 105 community projects, to help with their on-going work in their local communities during the pandemic.
All Community Directplus account holders can apply for up to £1000 from the Customer Donation Fund to support special projects and fundraising activities. The closing dates for applications are March and September, and they will then be assessed in April and October. We will notify you of the outcome of your application. Apply using the form below.
Our Community Directplus current account gives registered charities, community interest companies, co-operatives and credit unions an ethical way to bank for free.
