The FPA's charitable foundation Future2 has opened applications for its annual grants program for local not-for-profits (NFPs) and charities.
Future2's Make the Difference! Grants program offers funds to community NFPs and charities working to provide a better future to young Australians living with disadvantage.
NFPs and charities can apply for a one-year grant of up to $10,000 or a multi-year grant of up to $30,000.
The FPA has urged its members to support funding applications from eligible NFPs and charities in their local areas whose work is deserving of support.
"The financial planners will invite the not-for-profit to complete the grant application, support it with a personal statement and submit it to Future2," Future2 grants committee chairperson Corinna Dieters said in a statement.
"We want FPA members to take ownership of the grant application process by identifying local not-for-profits and charities that have a strong track record and high quality programs for young people aged 12 to 15 years who need a helping hand to turn around their lives."
Future2 chairperson Matthew Rowe reiterated the board's commitment to increasing its commitment to $2 million by 2017, drawing on the income from Future2's investments.
Applications for grants close on 1 August and recipients will be announced on 24 November at the Future2 gala dinner at the FPA Professionals Congress in Perth.
