The Fore is the only open-access funder in the UK offering development funding and strategic support to early-stage charities and social enterprises.
We are proud to be a funder without lengthy forms or restrictive criteria. We recognise you, our applicants, as the experts in your own fields so our process simply asks you to tell us who you are, what you need and how our funding would enable you to take a step forward in your operations. If we have any more questions, we will ask them of you individually.
We match successful applicants with friendly professional support ' ongoing mentoring, strategic advice, governance support or other assistance. And because we are committed to helping all organisations learn, we give feedback to unsuccessful candidates and offer access to our regular, high quality training and networking events.
The Fore is a partner of the Big Lottery Fund.
