The Fore offers small charities and social enterprises access to development funding and strategic support. It makes grants of up to £30k over one to three years and provides access to business expertise to help grantees achieve their goals.
It is an open-access funder with no lengthy application forms. It funds any organisation that is small (annual income less than £1m) and charitable. It needs to be UK registered, but can be a charity, a charitable incorporated organisations or community interest company. It makes unrestricted grants which have the potential to have a transformational impact on an organisation.
To apply for funding, organisations must register their contact details at the start of each funding round. Numbers are capped, so it is advisable to register early to avoid disappointment.
