The Fore’s Unique Funding Programme
Funding and support for small charities and social enterprises across the UK to grow, strengthen or become more efficient or resilient.
The Fore is the only open-access funder in the UK offering development funding and strategic support to early-stage charities and social enterprises who have exceptional leadership, innovative idea and cost-effective solutions.
The Fore offers a ‘wraparound’ package of unrestricted, multi-year grant-funding (up to £30,000) training, skilled volunteers, peer-to-peer networks and impact measurement to UK registered charities, CIOs, CICs, and social enterprises with an annual revenue of less than £500,000 in the previous completed financial year.
The funding is intended to have a transformational impact on the organisations being supported by unlocking exponential growth, sustainability, efficiency or some other major step forward.
The unrestricted funding can be used for any purpose, including core costs and capital funding. The grant could help, for example, an organisation grow, increase internal capacity, serve new beneficiary groups, become more sustainable or more efficient, etc. Applications for core costs must show how the funding will move the organisation forward rather than enabling ‘business as usual’.
There are three funding rounds each year (Spring, Summer, Autumn).
The next funding round will open for registration at noon on 6 December 2023 and close at noon on 13 December 2023.
