FUNDING: The Fore Developmental Grants – register 6-13 Dec

The time limited, one-week only registration period for this Spring 2024 funding round opens on 6 December 2023.

The Fore helps small charities make a big impact through unrestricted grants to grow, strengthen and become more efficient or resilient. They particularly look to support grassroots organisations working with underserved communities. 

Any registered charity, CIC, CIO or Community Benefit Society with turnover of under £500,000 is eligible to apply for up to £30,000, over one to three years.

The unrestricted grants are intended to create a step change for organisations (rather fund than ongoing work). They might help your organisation to grow, increase staff capacity, serve a new beneficiary group, become more sustainable or make your systems more efficient. The aim is to support you to be able to be better at what you do. 

In addition to funding, grantees get access to free, highly skilled support from experienced professionals, access to a wide range of training workshops (eg. fundraising, communications, finance, strategy) and a fully funded place on an impact measurement course. 

There is a one week only registration period, from midday on Wednesday 6 December to midday on Wednesday 13 December 2023.

Registered applicants will receive confirmation of their place on the funding round and details of how to apply on 14 December 2023 and will then need to apply by 5pm on Monday 15 January 2024.

Final award decisions will be made late March/early April 2024.
