AFA Foundation & the Community

The AFA Foundation encourages giving back to local communities. We do this by working with our charity partners to make a meaningful difference to people in need. This creates opportunities to foster community spirit and respect, by being connected and engaged with the financial advice profession.

The Kokoda Trail Initiative

As part of the AFA Foundation’s 10th anniversary celebrations, we have partnered with Norgay Freeman to offer a Kokoda Trail program. Limited to 25 people, the program will be conducted over the inclusive dates 30 August to 8 September 2017.

A superb trek into the heartland of Papua New Guinea, the Kokoda Trail is an Australian icon stretching some 96 kilometers through what is arguably some of the most rugged and wild jungle in the world.

Brian has successfully led over 55 expeditions, taking over 2,000 people from all walks of life across the trail. 100% of participants have completed the trail successfully. Brian will ensure that you have all of the right gear, prepare with a tailored training program and ensure your medical assessment is completed. 

This wonderful program will offer you the chance to take a personal journey, raise funds for the AFA Foundation and walk alongside returned Australian service men and women. 

To register your interest, please email AFA Foundation Chair, Olivia at :


Help the Kokoda participants raise funds via tax deductible donations!


Members of the AFA community have committed to walking Kokoda in August 2017.

As part of the program they each need to raise $2,000 for the AFA Foundation.

As participants confirm their requirement for online donations,

personalised donation buttons will be added.

You can support them by donating online here!
