FPA charity seeks adviser input to grants
The Financial Planning Association of Australia’s philanthropic arm is seeking adviser input into programs supporting young Australians experiencing social, financial or physical hardship.
Advisers from across Australia contribute to the FPA’s Future2 Foundation by nominating organisations for the annual Make the Difference! Grant program, supporting young Australians aged 12 to 25 years experiencing social, financial or physical hardship, the FPA said in a statement.
“The Future2 Foundation is all about making a meaningful difference to the lives of young Australians, who through circumstance, often at no fault of their own, are experiencing difficult times,” said Future2 chair Petra Churcher.
“The struggle these children face each day is significant. These young people are our future and we are committed to supporting them to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
“Future2 reached the $1 million milestone last year by awarding $181,000 in new grants to 19 not-for-profit organisations, including three special grants to organisations focused on helping young people in drought affected rural areas.”
All applications must be endorsed by an adviser who is a member of the FPA. Nominations are open from Monday, 13 May to 26 July, with recipients announced in November.
