Customer Donation Fund

Over £1.1 million donated through our Customer Donation Fund to 1,252 local causes since 2003.

This year, we are proud to sponsor the Sport Gives Back Awards, a ceremony that recognises individuals and organisations that use sport to change lives. In addition to this, up to £20,000 from our Customer Donation Fund will be donated to existing Community Directplus customers who make a difference through sport.

Our Community Directplus current account gives

  • Registered charities
  • Community interest companies
  • Co-operatives
  • Credit unions

an ethical way to bank for free.

Community Directplus customers are helping us support communities and can apply for funding for special projects and fundraising.
