The Fore is the first seed funder for the charity sector in the UK, unlocking 21st century solutions to society’s greatest challenges. We are committed to breaking down barriers and sharing skills to ensure that anyone with the talent and drive to create social change is connected with the support they need to reach their potential.

We work with small charities and social enterprises that are innovating across all sectors, from developing fresh ideas for mental health support, to preventing environmental damage, reducing education inequality and improving racial justice. We bring together businesses, funders and social entrepreneurs to open up access to finance and skills for these exceptional quality social purpose organisations.

Our venture capital-style approach offers a complete package of unrestricted funding, professional expertise and impact measurement support.
