The Fore is a seed funder for the non-profit sector. We catalyse fresh solutions to pressing social issues including knife crime, childhood obesity, social isolation, food poverty and homelessness. Our venture capital style approach opens up access to finance and professional expertise for innovative small charities and social enterprises. We bring together businesses, funders and social entrepreneurs committed to removing barriers and sharing skills to strengthen society as a whole.

In response to the coronavirus crisis, The Fore and its partners launched RAFT (Rapid Action by The Fore and Trusts) in April 2020 and two Transition funding rounds in Autumn 2020, distributing over £2m between March and December. On 12th April 2021 our Summer funding round will open offering grants of up to £30,000.

The Fore continues to be committed to distributing unrestricted funding, and connecting great organisations with skilled volunteer support. To find out more about the impact of RAFT click here.
