The Fairtrade Saver is part of the Triodos Charity Saver range of accounts and is run in partnership with the Fairtrade Foundation .

Turn your savings into a force for good
Are you on the lookout for more ways to support the people who produce the everyday goods we consume? Would you like your savings to help bring a fair deal to farmers, workers and their communities in the developing world? Then show your commitment with the Fairtrade Saver account. As well as earning interest on your savings, you'll have the assurance that your money is being put to work to transform the lives of some of the world's poorest and most marginalised people.
It’s for anyone aged 16 or over who has £100 or more to save. You can open a Fairtrade Saver in your name, or jointly with another person. The more you save, the more we’ll pay directly to Fairtrade Foundation – we'll donate the equivalent of 0.25% of the average annual balance of your account. And if you want to, you can choose to donate all or a percentage of your interest, too.
A cause for your concern
Opening our Fairtrade Saver account means straightaway you’re making a difference. The more you save, the more interest you earn, and the more we’ll donate to the Fairtrade Foundation. And it’s not just a better return on your savings – your money is helping farmers, workers and their families in the developing world enjoy stability today, as well as a brighter future for tomorrow.
