A new Future2 GIVING HUB is designed to make online giving and fundraising simple and fun.

The power of storytelling
Two Future2 grant recipients are among the 30 charities whose remarkable work is told through real-life, emotional stories in the Australian Charity Storybook, published in November by the Not for Profit Foundation.
FRANS and Byron Community Centre have received multiple grants from Future2 to support their inspiring programs helping disadvantaged kids to a better future. FPA members heard Rostyn and Stephanie from Byron Community tell their stories at the FPA Congress this year. Tom and Tara also tugged our heartstrings at the FPA Conference in 2011. Now you can read their stories and be inspired all over again - just click the links above!

Applaud our cycling heroes
The fourth annual Future2 Wheel Classic arrived in Sydney on Sunday 13 October, completing a nine day 1250 km ride from Melbourne. Nearly 30 financial planners and friends took part and raised over $100,000 - money that will give disadvantaged young Australians a better life through Future2's Make the Difference! grants program.
The Jack Griffin Memorial Trophy for best individual fundraising outcome goes to Darren Stevens of Godfrey Pembroke Financial Consultants.
The Future2 Wheel Classic team trophy for best team fundraising outcome goes to AMP Sparks.
The 2013 Future2 Wheel Classic was generously supported by AMP Financial Planning, Gold Partner, and Matrix Planning Solutions, Silver Partner.
In Melbourne and Byron Bay last week Future2 presented cheques to two community not-for-profits whose successful programs for disadvantaged kids earned them extra funding.
Almost 400 people from the WA financial services industry celebrated Melbourne Cup day in Perth with a great occasion and $25,000 in the bank for Future2!
Five community not-for-profits are to receive grants of $10,000 each, enabling them to build programs that will give disadvantaged young Australians hope for a better future. Two more get $5,000 grants to expand successful projects funded by Future2 in earlier grant awards.
