The Fore is the only open-access funder in the UK offering development funding and strategic support to early-stage charities and social enterprises. Unrestricted grants of up to £30,000 over one to three years and access to business expertise are available to any UK registered charity, social enterprise or community interest company with an annual income less than £1m.
Deadline: 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 applicant receives 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 early registration is recommended. Once successfully registered, organisations are invited to submit a simple application.
Summer 2019 funding round is now closed.
Autumn 2019 funding round opens for registration on 29 July 2019, 10am. Successfully registered applicants must submit their application by 2 September 2019 with final decisions being announced by 29 November 2019.
