Forester Discovery Fund to liquidate

497 1 forester497.htm



March 25, 2021
Supplement to the Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information, both dated
July 31, 2020

The Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of Forester Funds (the “Trust”) has determined that it is in the best interest of shareholders to liquidate the Forester Discovery Fund (the “Fund”), a series of the Trust, following a recommendation by the Fund’s investment adviser, Forester Capital Management, LTD (the “Adviser”).

Effective immediately, the Fund is no longer accepting purchase orders for its shares and it will close effective March 30, 2021 (the “Closing Date”). Shareholders may redeem Fund shares at any time prior to the Closing Date. Procedures for redeeming your account, including reinvested distributions, are contained in the section “How to Redeem Shares” of the Fund’s Prospectus. Any shareholders that have not redeemed their shares of the Fund prior to the Closing Date will have their shares automatically redeemed as of that date, with proceeds being sent to the address of record. If your Fund shares were purchased through a broker-dealer and are held in a brokerage account, redemption proceeds may be forwarded by the Fund directly to the broker-dealer for deposit into your brokerage account

Effective immediately, the Fund is no longer pursuing its investment objective. All holdings in the Fund’s portfolio are being liquidated, and the proceeds will be invested in money market instruments or held in cash. Any capital gains will be distributed as soon as practicable to shareholders and reinvested in additional Fund shares, unless you have requested payment in cash. Shareholders may continue to freely redeem their shares on each business day during the Fund’s liquidation process.


If you are a retirement plan investor, you should consult your tax adviser regarding the consequences of a redemption of Fund shares. If you receive a distribution from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or a Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) IRA, you must roll the proceeds into another IRA within 60 days of the date of the distribution in order to avoid having to include the distribution in your taxable income for the year. If you are the trustee of a qualified retirement plan or the custodian of a 403(b)(7) custodian account (tax-sheltered account) or a Keogh account, you may reinvest the proceeds in any way permitted by its governing instrument.
