Call out to FPA members: Future2 ‘Make the Difference!’

From

Grant nominations open Sydney, 23 May 2017 Future2, the philanthropic arm of the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA), is calling for FPA members to nominate a local not-for-profit organisation for its Make the Difference! Grants program.

Since 2007, Future2 has committed $688,000 in grants to community not-for-profits through the generosity and fundraising efforts of FPA members and friends. The annual grants program supports life changing projects designed to help young Australians in need to go on to lead productive, secure and happy lives.

The young people benefitting from Future2 grants include those who are outside mainstream education, living with intellectual or physical disability, fighting an addiction, living in dysfunctional families, in juvenile justice, or new migrants seeking a place in their adopted home.

The grants are open to not-for-profits around Australia that provide opportunities for under 25s to develop learning and leadership skills, receive mentoring, participate in remedial programs for drug and alcohol dependence, and take part in independent living projects that help address social exclusion and homelessness.

FPA COO Pene Lovett, said, “There are countless organisations doing great work in every corner of Australia. We encourage FPA members to shine a light on them by nominating them for a grant. Last year, Future2 was able to award $147,000 in grants and through the generous support from FPA members, we hope to surpass this for 2017.”

All applications must be endorsed by a licensed financial planner who is a member of the FPA. Nominations close Friday 21 July. The grants will be announced during the FPA Professionals Congress, to be held in Hobart 22-24 November.
