Since 1992, the AMP Foundation has invested more than $100 million into the community to help organisations and individuals bring about positive change.
We support non-profits that help Australians build financial security and better futures. We also help AMP employees and financial advisers to give back through pro bono work, mentoring, volunteering, fundraising and payroll giving.
The AMP Foundation helps individuals, too. AMP’s Tomorrow Fund - our annual $1 million grants program that has been running since 2014 - supports Australians of all ages, walks of life and interests who are making a difference in their community.
We also invest in social benefit financial instruments and social enterprises that achieve both a commercial investment and demonstrated social outcomes.
The AMP Foundation takes a strategic approach to philanthropy by working with a small group of non-profit organisations that help improve financial wellbeing in the community, including:
- Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand is a financial inclusion leader that, through an AMP Foundation-funded program, provides expert support to AMP clients facing financial hardship.
- Cancer Council. The AMP Foundation has been funding the Cancer Council Pro Bono Program since 2010. This national initiative enables financial advisers to provide free advice to people affected by cancer who could not otherwise afford it.
- Tender Funerals Australia, which aims to help communities to create local social enterprises that can deliver affordable and meaningful funerals.
- Variety Queensland, which supports children who are ill, disadvantaged or living with disability. It is piloting a financial counselling service for the families of these children.
- Wesley Mission, which provides a range of community services, including financial counselling. The AMP Foundation is funding its financial counselling intern service.
We help AMP’s people to share their time, skills and resources with a range of non-profits, including:
- Global Sisters, which helps disadvantaged women to create and run successful businesses.
- The Funding Network, supporting grassroots charities through live crowdfunding events.
- Young Change Agents, which supports young people through social entrepreneur education programs.
We also provide one-off funding in times of great need. In 2020, in response to the global pandemic we awarded $2 million in capacity-building grants to help 23 charities to take on the challenges of COVID-19. Learn more here.
