About the Reach Fund Programme
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.
Social investors are often approached by charities and social enterprises who require extra, final stage 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 £6m of grants have been awarded to date, and a further £4m funding will be available.
