Helping to build stronger communities

The Mortgage Advice Bureau Foundation is a grant-giving charity supporting community-based projects that are chosen by our staff, our customers and our business partners.

About the Foundation

In 2022, the Mortgage Advice Bureau established the Foundation to create awareness among its staff and customers of the growing need of the communities they live in or are choosing to move to.

We have partnered with Crowdfunder to give local charities and Community Interest Companies the opportunity to achieve their fundraising goals in a sustainable way and to support our talented and enthusiastic staff and customers to get their best and brightest projects off the ground.

Projects picked by you

The opportunity to raise funds for specific neighbourhood projects is available to our customers, colleagues and partners across the MAB Network. This includes our employee community, business partners, lenders and protection providers.

This gives many people connected with MAB nationally the opportunity to come together at a local level and do wonderful things in a wide range of communities.
