Future2, the charitable foundation of the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA), has opened its 2016 Make the Difference! Grants to applications and called on FPA members to identify eligible not-for-profits and charities in their areas whose work for disadvantaged young Australians is deserving of support.
Applications for Future2 grants are now open and close on 1 August. The grants offer vital funds to community not-for-profits and charities working to give a better future to young Australians who are living with disadvantage – such as homelessness, addictions, social exclusion, poverty and disability. They may choose to apply for a one year grant of up to $10,000 or a multi-year grant of up to $30,000.
Between 2007 and 2015, Future2 has made grants totalling $613,000, giving young people who are socially isolated and financially challenged hope for a brighter future.
