Foundation Grants 2020

About the 2020 Foundation Grants Program

In 2019 we launched the AFA Foundation Grants, received 13 applications (2 were not eligible for consideration) and paid five charities in QLD, NSW, VIC, SA and WA. We would like to thank the advisers who have stayed connected to these charities since the grants were allocated so that we can understand and celebrate the impact of our donations.

We received 25 applications for consideration in the 2020 AFA Foundation Grants. Thank you to everyone who made a submission. We were pleased so see so many submissions for charities in remote and regional locations, plus our first one from Tasmania! Unfortunately 2 of the applications were not made by AFA members so were not eligible for consideration. If you would like to help us connect a WA and NSW member with these charities, please contact so that they can submit another application next year.
