Up to $100,000 is available from AMP Foundation Tomorrow Fund to support projects that undertake a community initiative or inspires others to achieve.
AMP’s Tomorrow Fund
AMP Foundation Tomorrow Fund is giving amazing Australians doing great things the chance to share $1 million in grants. It’s open to individuals of all ages, walks of life, interests and abilities who have put a lot of time and effort into reaching a goal that will positively impact the community, but need help to take it to the next level.
For over 160 years, AMP has been helping Australians to realise their dreams. Now AMP’s Tomorrow Fund wants to bring many more dreams to life by backing Australian talent, achievement and potential across the nation. The fund is an initiative of AMP’s philanthropic arm, The AMP Foundation, which has been supporting change to create a better tomorrow for everyone since 1992.
Grants ranging from $5,000 to $100,000 will be awarded later in 2019 for a range of activities, including training, travel, equipment and research.
Australian citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply for an AMP Tomorrow Fund grant. There and very few restrictions and no age limit – everyone from children, young adults and older Australians are all welcome to apply. Applicants under 18, however, need the permission of a parent or guardian.
AMP grants are for individuals only. If you are part of a team, club, charity or other organisation you can still apply for an individual grant, but you will be judged on your own merit and funds will be awarded to you and not your group.
AMP Tomorrow Fund grants can fund a diverse range of activities. The money could be used for training and travel costs associated with competing in a sport, study assistance while you work on research or small business funding for an innovative idea. You should have a good idea of what it will cost to take your project or passion to the next stage. How much you ask for is up to you, but ensure your budget is realistic as grant recipients will be asked to report on their spending. Avoid inflating your budget or adding unnecessary items.
If you are awarded a grant, the money must be used for the item(s) you included in your application. This may be costs for starting a small business, study or travel associated with training and so on. You will be asked for a breakdown of your anticipated costs in your application and will be asked for proof of expenditure should you be awarded a grant.
Applications close 27 May 2019.
