AMP’s Tomorrow Fund is once again looking for amazing Australians doing great things in your community to share in $1 million in grants.

This annual grants program does not have any categories – it is open to individuals of all ages, interests and abilities who are working towards a goal that will positively impact the community but need help to make it happen. They may be creating something special, inspiring others or trying to address a societal problem.

“Every year we are astounded at the talent and innovation that is out there in the community."

Talented and innovative Australians – or Tomorrow Makers – who are working hard to make a difference can apply for grants of $5,000, up to $100,000 to be used for a range of activities, including travel, equipment, study costs, research and more.

Since 2014, almost 190 AMP Tomorrow Fund grants have been awarded to Australians in diverse fields, including artists, athletes, astronomers, social innovators, scientists, educators, disability advocates, technologists, filmmakers, fashion designers and musicians.

“Every year we are astounded at the talent and innovation that is out there in the community,” said Helen Liondos, Head of Sustainability & AMP Foundation, AMP.

“We look at these grants as way to support those hardworking change-makers who often fall through the funding gaps. And we know from our past recipients that our AMP Tomorrow Fund grants provide the boost in finances and confidence that helps them achieve great things for Australia.”

Amazing Australians doing great things can apply online at ampstomorrowfund.com.au by 4pm (AEST) 17 May.

Grant recipients sharing in $1 million will be announced in November 2018.
