Future2 2016 Make the Difference! grants
Applications for Future2's 2016 Make the Difference! grants are now closed. The grants support programs to give a second chance and hope for a brighter future to young Australians (12-25 years) who may be homeless, excluded from mainstream education, affected by dysfunctional family life, drug or alcohol dependent, jobless or have disabilities.
FPA members will identify eligible not-for-profits and charities in their areas whose work for disadvantaged young Australians is deserving of support. Not-for-profits and charities without existing relationships with financial planners should take early steps to find one who is happy to nominate the grant application.
F2 Wheel Classic in Perth
A GREAT SUCCESS!
Future2's flagship fundraiser headed to Western Australia this year with a circular route starting and ending in Perth, from 17-23 November. The 2016 Future2 Wheel Classic followed a 7-day 930 km route through coastal and southern WA via Margaret River and Mandurah.
Scaling the heights
for kids in need
From 17-28 February four financial planners scaled the heights of the world's highest freestanding mountain to raise funds for disadvantaged young Australians. The Future2 Kilimanjaro team has raised over $39,500 and completed the challenge of a lifetime. They made the summit in the early hours of the morning (Tanzanian time) on 24 February.
Making a real difference
Take a couple of minutes to hear from Future2 grant recipients and some of the financial planners who are contributing to better lives for young Australians in need.
Nineteen cyclists from across Australia will set off tomorrow from the Esther Café in Perth for the 2016 Future2 Wheel Classic. The seven-day, 930km fundraising ride will take a coastal route to Margaret River, returning to Perth via Bridgetown and Mandurah in time for the opening of the FPA Professionals Congress on Wednesday 23 November.
Future2 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.
2015 - a turning point
An increase in grants awarded, higher fundraising income and the growing support of the financial planning community. These developments made 2015 a turning point, says Future2 Chair Steve Helmich in the foundation's 2015 Annual Review.
