Charity Funds

Many charities are surprisingly not protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) against bank deposits held within the European Economic Area.

The qualifying criteria for protection are that a charity:

  • Has a turnover of not more than £6.5 million
  • Has a balance sheet total of not more than £3.26 million
  • Has not more than 50 employees.

Many larger charities fall outside of these criteria, so are not shielded from risk of bank failure a fact which should be considered when deciding on a secure home for their funds.
