The Fore Trust

The Fore Trust is the only open-access funder in the UK offering development funding and strategic support to early-stage charities and social enterprises.
The Fore will fund any organisation that is small (i.e. with an annual income less than £1m) and charitable. Applicants need to be UK registered, but can be a charity, social enterprise or community interest company.
Grants can be for up to £30,000 and are intended to help organisations develop or do something new.
Applicants need to explain what difference the funding will make and what it will enable the organisation to achieve. For example, a grant could enable an organisation to take a step forward in its development by giving it the opportunity to do something it couldn’t previously.
Successful applicants are also matched with friendly professional support – ongoing mentoring, strategic advice, governance support or other assistance.
The Fore runs three twelve-week funding rounds to coincide with the academic calendar each year.
To apply for funding, organisations must register at the start of each funding round.
Numbers for each round are capped to ensure every application is given the attention it deserves.
Registration is run on a first-come, first-serve basis and once the cap is reached, the round is closed, therefore applicants are strongly advised to register early.
Once successfully registered, organisations are invited to submit a simple application via a secure weblink.
Registration for the Autumn 2017 round opens at 10am on Monday 24 July with an application deadline of Tuesday 29 August.
Funding decisions will be made by the first week in December 2017.
