The Fore is the first seed funder for the charity sector in the UK. We are a collaboration of individuals, businesses, funders and social entrepreneurs committed to breaking down barriers and sharing skills. Our mission is 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 open up access to finance and skills for high-quality small charities and social enterprises innovating across all sectors. Our grantees are developing fresh ideas for mental health support, preventing environmental damage, reducing education inequality and improving racial justice.

Our venture capital-style approach offers a complete package of unrestricted funding, professional expertise and impact measurement support. Read more about the impact of our work and how we are reaching organisations overlooked by other funders here. Our Autumn funding round has now closed for registrations – follow us @theforetrust to be kept informed on dates for Spring 2022.
