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

We are delighted to announce the success of Kokoda 2017 which raised over $40,000 for the AFA Foundation.

As part of the AFA Foundation’s 10th anniversary celebrations, we partnered with Norgay Freeman to offer a Kokoda Trail program from the 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.

AFA Members are invited to complete the Kokoda Trail in 2018 from 29 August - 7 Septermer, led by world adventurer and Founder of the Carrying41 Tribute - Brian Freeman. The 2018 program will be coming soon. 


You can watch how our team got on during the 2017 Kokoda Trail below:
