Development funding and strategic support to early-stage charities and social enterprises
The Fore, a partner of the Big Lottery Fund, is the only open-access funder in the UK offering development funding and strategic support to early-stage charities and social enterprises. The Fore makes grants of up to £30,000 over one to three years and provides access to business expertise to help grantees achieve their goals.
The Fore is a funder without lengthy forms or restrictive criteria who recognises that applicants are the experts in their own fields. Their process is simply to ask you to tell The Fore who you are, what you need and how the funding would enable you to take a step forward in your operations.
The Fore matches successful applicants with friendly professional support – ongoing mentoring, strategic advice, governance support or other assistance. And because they are committed to helping all organisations learn, they give feedback to unsuccessful candidates and offer access to their regular, training and networking events.
Closing date for the current round of funding is 7th January 2019. Read more and apply for a grant here
