Ethical Cash ISA
Important message: On 30 April 2013, we closed our Cash ISA (Issue 3) to new customers. Due to unprecedented levels of new deposits our loan book is fully funded and we have sufficient liquidity to meet our existing loan demand. If you would like to be notified when we launch a new Cash ISA please email your full name and title to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Charity Bank Cash ISA Third Edition
An investment in the Ethical Cash ISA from Charity Bank will not just secure you a competitive tax-free 2.05%* return on your money. It will also help us lend money to any number of charities and social enterprises such as Community Wise, a community centre in Eastbourne who required funding to buy and then upgrade their building.
In fact since 2002, Charity Bank has made a real difference to more than 3.5 million people by lending over £165m to charities and community projects across the UK. We are also responsible about how we lend money and on our website you can find full details about the organisations to which we’ve lent money.

Financial Return and Social Impact
Our Ethical Cash ISA invites savers to take a more ethical approach to banking by creating social impact, whilst still earning a competitive return. The Ethical Cash ISA supports a wide range of organisations committed to providing education and training, arts and heritage, community regeneration, social care, health, housing and supported accommodation, as well as international and sustainable development.
