Follow the Money 2015

Sep 09, 2015

Posted in

We invite you to follow the money saved with us to a charity or social enterprise near you.

Money is an intrepid traveller, destined for diverse locations across the globe, invested in businesses and industries, some positive others destructive. Its most unsavoury destinations are well documented: the arms trade, gambling, tobacco, industries where workers are exploited or environments damaged, the making of corrupt payments to secure contracts... You get the picture.

At Charity Bank, money has a moral compass. When guided by good intentions, it embarks on a journey to care for and protect people and the wonders of nature.

Witness the journey of ethical finance and follow the money

Our Follow the Money series of events is designed to give you the opportunity to follow the money saved in our ethical accounts to a charity or social enterprise near you. From 19th to 28th October 2015, fifteen of our borrowers in different locations across the UK will be opening their doors, welcoming your interest in their work.

What you can expect

Each event is an opportunity to learn about what diverse organisations are doing to address social issues and how your savings are contributing. You will get a chance to talk to the people running charities, social enterprises and community organisations, as well as those they support.

There will be lunch, an opportunity to learn and explore, and the company of extraordinary people. Sign up to as many visits as you like and bring your friends and family. This is your opportunity to see the good that you can do when you put your money where your values are.

As spaces are limited, we are giving priority to current savers and others from the Charity Bank community.

We hope to see you there!
