How to nominate a charity?
Following the success of our programme since we launched it in 2021, we have increased our donation to £500 per charity. We will send out email invitations to all our customers with an active loan or savings account asking them to nominate charities for a donation.
To receive this email, customers need to have opted in for marketing emails or those that have opted out and only want to receive the nomination email can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does the process work?
- Eligible customers will receive an email – only those with an active UK savings account or loan are eligible.
- Customers will then be able to nominate their charity to be considered for a donation.
- Charities will be selected quarterly from the nominations.
- We select one customer at random that nominated the successful charity for a £50 Amazon voucher – customers can choose to donate the cash equivalent of their voucher to the charity.
- An announcement will be made via email each quarter to inform our customers of the charity selected
- Charities not yet selected are considered on a rolling basis and will still be in the running each quarter. So no need to nominate the same charity each quarter.
