If you're looking at charity savings accounts, you may not be too impressed by the interest rates on offer at the moment.

As a result, your charity's hard-won funds may only be earning a pittance… but it doesn't have to be that way!

While well-known banks and building societies don't tend to offer the very best rates on the market, there are other providers to choose from. As a trustee, you will need to be prepared to shop around to find the best charity savings rates.

If you take the time to look, there are a number of higher-paying accounts available to charities, with the majority being offered by smaller, lesser-known providers.

The best rates on charity deposit accounts will be paid when your organisation:

  • Can commit to not having immediate or near-term access to its funds. Notice and fixed rate accounts offer higher rates than accounts allowing easy access.
  • Has a sizeable sum to save. For instance, charities with £50K to invest will probably secure better interest rates than those with more modest amounts to invest.
  • Have a look at Business Deposit Accounts as an alternative
