The FPA’s philanthropic Future2 foundation has commemorated 10 years of operation, having donated in excess of $800,000 during that time.
Future2 was established by the FPA as a means of raising money to support not-for-profit organisations around Australia to “help disadvantaged youth realise their potential”, the industry body said in a statement.
This year, Future2 has awarded $133,000 in grants to 14 charity organisations that have been endorsed by FPA members.
“I applaud the generosity of those FPA members who commit their time and energy to help make a meaningful difference to their communities,” said Future2 chairman Matthew Brown.
“So many of the grant applications received showcase the ways that our members are actively involved in these worthy not-for-profits, through volunteer work and the provision of pro bono services.”
In the 10 years since Future2 commenced, it has awarded $823,000 in grants to groups supporting disadvantaged Australian youths.
