The Fore is a nurturer and an incubator. We offer funding and exceptional expertise to the best small charities that should have the confidence to think bigger. Our rigorous due diligence removes the usual risk associated with early-stage funding.
The Fore combines pioneering philanthropy with exciting engagement opportunities for our partners’ most valuable staff.
We make it easy and we make it fun
Low Risk >
Our thorough due diligence process removes the usual risk in supporting early-stage projects.
Our broad portfolio of charities means every business has access to something different.
Cost Effective >
Our founding funders believe in our model so strongly they have pledged over £1m in operating costs so 100% of donations go to the charities selected for support.
Exciting for Employees >
Your staff have the chance to experience how their business skills can improve people’s lives.
And you as a donor can rest assured that the causes you are supporting are in the best hands, because your own staff are involved in selecting, mentoring and advising them.
As a Business:
To become a partner of The Fore, businesses are required to make a donation – 100% of this donation goes to our funded charities.
We invite all our business partners to nominate a select number of their experienced staff to become Members of The Fore. Nominated staff need five years of professional experience so they can provide knowledgeable support to our selected charities.
As an Employee:
We understand how busy people are, so being a Member of The Fore can range from taking as little as a few hours a year, to taking on a trusteeship. We get to know our Members to ensure that whatever time you give, you will be bringing all your hard-won business experience to the table, because our organisations need it. And we help to individually match Members with causes you care most about.
Members are invited to share their skills at three different stages of our funding process, each with a varied time commitment (also see Funding Process diagram):
