Community Grants

As a mutual we don’t have shareholders so any profit we make is used for your benefit, like by providing our members with the chance to apply for Community Grants.

Our Community Grants lets you apply online for a financial grant so that you can organise Community Volunteer and Fun Family1 activities that are meaningful to you and your community.

At Foresters, we take the health and safety of our members seriously. With the local government and health officials implementing strict safety measures during COVID-19, we’re making it a priority to take the proper precautions when executing all community activities. Fun Family grants and activities through the Community Grants programme have been cancelled for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021 until further notice.

In 2019, we invested over £3.3 million2 in member-organised activities in the UK, US and Canada, enabling 93,836 members and their families to spend quality time together, have fun and give back.

What is a Community Volunteer Grant?

An opportunity for our members to give back. Members can apply for a Community Volunteer grant to plan, organise and run a one-day volunteer activity in their area in support of a cause they care about.
