Foresters Community Grants Programme

Our popular and valuable Foresters Community Grants programme lets you apply online for a financial grant so that you can organise Community Volunteer activities and Fun Family events that are meaningful to you and your community. In 2018, we invested over £2.88 million1 in member-organised activities enabling 76,991 members and their families to spend quality time together, have fun and give back.

Thinking about applying for a Community Grant?

We’ve got some exciting news: We’ve made the application process even easier for our members with an all-new application system.

The new site is designed to provide the best possible experience for our members. The process is streamlined, easy to navigate and offers support at each stage of the application. For those who have applied in the past, rest assured that the granting guidelines remain the same. We simply want to make things easier for you.

To access the new system from the login page you will need to enter the email address you have on file with Foresters and follow the instructions to create a temporary password. If you have any issues or need to update your email address, please contact Customer Service at 0333 600 0333. Lines are open Monday to Friday 8:30AM to 5:00PM.


As the number of reported cases of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to rise, Foresters is continuously monitoring information published from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the daily televised updates provided by Prime Minister Boris Johnson. 

As such, Foresters Community Grants programme will not be approving any new community volunteer or fun family Granting activities taking place between March to the end of June. Grants with activity dates from July 2020 on will be considered for approval at a later date based on continued monitoring of the COVID-19 situation.

In the meantime, we will continue to assess currently approved grants and will be making cancellation decisions on a case-by-case basis. If you are registered to attend or host an activity, please use your best judgement in terms of your personal health to decide to continue with hosting or attending the event.

If you are not feeling well enough to attend an event, cancel your registration and do not attend.

If you are hosting an event and are not feeling well, connect with the Granting team at as soon as possible so we can work with you on the cancellation.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation as we do our best to put the health and safety of our members and their families first.
