Fundsurfer is an Access Point for The Reach Fund.
If you are a charity or social enterprise who requires extra support to raise investment, then you can apply for grants of around £15,000 from The Reach Fund for help with business planning, cashflow forecasts or measuring impact, and more.
What is the Reach Fund?
The Reach Fund is a grant programme that helps charities and social enterprises raise investment. The programme is funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment and is open to organisations in England. For more information visit their website.
Social investors are often approached by charities and social enterprises who require extra support to raise investment.
Through this programme, social investors can refer these organisations to the Reach Fund to apply for grants to pay for the support they need. Over £3m of grants have been awarded to date, and a further £7m funding will be available; you can apply for grants of around £15,000.
What's an Access Point?
Access Points are social investors who can refer charities and social enterprises to the Reach Fund so that they are able to apply for a grant.
We work with charities and social enterprises who require extra support to raise investment. They may need further support on business planning, cashflow forecasts or measuring impact.
Access Points will be able to refer these organisations to the Reach Fund so that they can apply for a grant to carry out the work they need to do in order to raise investment.
Calling all charities, CIC’s and social enterprises!
Is your organisation nearly ready for social investment?
Do you need a little more specific support in order to do this?
Fundsurfer is an approved Reach Fund Access Point and can help you secure a grant to get investment-ready.
What does this mean?
We have been granted an initial allocation from The Reach Fund to share amongst those organisations where a grant would make the key difference in becoming investment-ready. As an official Access Point, we can help your organisation complete and submit an investment readiness plan and a grant application to The Reach Fund.
How much could I get?
Typically grants of up to £15,000 are available. However, each application will be reviewed and judged on its merits, so there is potential to be offered more- subject to full justification. As an Access Point, Fundsurfer will provide the supporting documents to The Reach Fund to further your chances of being selected.
I am interested. What do I do next?
To check if your organisation will be eligible to apply for a grant, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send over a short questionnaire for you to complete and return.
