How it works

Charitable Term Deposits

Make a real difference each year to some of your favourite charities and churches around the country, without donating any of your own money. Charitable Term Deposits work just like a normal term deposit, except we donate an amount equal to the interest which you would have earned on a term deposit annually of the same term to an eligible charity nominated by you.
Choose your investment term

You decide the term you’d like your funds invested for, from 1 to 5 years. A donation is made quarterly by Christian Savings to a charity of your choice.

Choose your charity or church

You choose the charity or church you’d like to support. Let us know if there’s a charity not already on our list that you’d like to support; we’re always working to expand.

Choose how to reinvest

At the end of your chosen term, a donation is made by Christian Savings to your nominated church or charity. When the deposit comes up to maturity, you can invest more, change the term, or withdraw some or all of your investment.

Eligible Charitable Organisations

Choose the charity or church you’d like to support. If you’d like to support a charity that’s not already on our list, please contact us. We’re always working to expand our list of eligible charities.

“I would highly recommend Christian Savings because of their excellent customer service, attractive interest rates and the funds are being used for good causes.”
