The Fore 

Type of project: Our funding might help your organisation to grow, increase your internal capacity, serve new beneficiary groups, become more sustainable or more efficient – we just want you to be able to be better at what you do. We see our grants as investments in the organisations we support – unlike many funders, we do not fund project-based work. We look to make grants that will strengthen organisations for the longer term. Useful video on the behind the scenes of the fund from the founder.

Location: UK & overseas

Eligibility: The Fore encourages applications from small organisations working with marginalised groups and led by people in the community that may have found it hard to access trust and foundation funding in the past. Any registered charity, CIC, CIO or Community Benefit Society with an income of under £500,000 in their last completed financial year is eligible to apply.

Grant size: Unrestricted funding up to £30,000 over up to 3 years.

Closing date: 13 December
