Future2 Make the Difference! Grant program


Since May 2007 Future2 has made grants totalling some $250,000 to community charities and not-for-profit bodies working with disadvantaged young Australians.

Future2’s grants focus on the under 25s who may be financially disadvantaged, homeless, juvenile justice offenders, drug or alcohol dependent, disabled or Indigenous. Grants are awarded to projects and programs in areas such as financial literacy, skills training, work experience, community service or mentoring.

The Make the Difference! Grant program is designed to encourage the involvement of financial planning professionals in community projects by requiring their endorsement and support of each grant application. All grant applications are made by charities and community groups with the support of members of the Financial Planning Association (FPA), the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA), or other professional bodies recognised by Future2.

2013 Make the Difference! grants will open to applications from 8 April to 31 July.  Grants will be announced in October 2013.  Last year, grants totalling $60,000 were awarded to 7 not for profit organisations.
