The Future2 Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA), has awarded $191,066 in new grants to 20 not-for-profit organisations in 2019, an increase of more than 5 per cent over last year. Future2 has now committed $1,195,066 in grants since its inception in 2007. 

FPA members endorse every dollar awarded by the Future2 Foundation to the Make the Difference! grants program. Future2 actively supports projects that give hope to 12-25 year old Australians around the country who are experiencing social, financial or physical hardship. 

Future2 Chair Petra Churcher said the work of charitable organisations right across Australia is recognised and supported by the Future2 Make the Difference! grants program.

“We are grateful for the generosity of FPA members and supporters of Future2 who commit their time and energy to help make a meaningful difference to their communities. I’m delighted that we’ve been able to boost grants from $181,000 last year to $191,066 in 2019,” said Ms Churcher.

“We received many grant applications this year and it was inspiring to hear of the many ways our members contribute to their local communities with volunteer work, pro-bono financial planning services and other support.

“Future2 has so many great success stories. We have been able to help young people through a range of programs: from mentoring to suicide prevention, to indigenous and refugee welfare to employment programs.”
