    • finding an international bank with online banking for us (Jean-Yves)pending

Would it make sense to choose a bank which focuses on NGO's or has a special dedication towards "fair banking?" At least in Germany there are some banks like this. Kiwiflave 13:53, 26 July 2007 (CEST)

In France there is "La Nef" (www.lanef.com) which is a cooperative for solidarity finances. They call it "ethical bank". Their values are transparency, responsibility and solidarity. It specially make sense at the time of financing a project, but also for saving money since you know that your savings wont be used for unethical projects. Also, each client becomes member of their G.A. BUT: I'm not sure if they offer good service for us (online banking, cheap international transferts) so I cant tell if it's the best for us. For JY: they work with "Credit Cooperatif" (which is specialized in bank for NGOs), so in these agencies you can manage your accounts in La Nef.
