FAQs

Here are some of the most common questions asked about our grants program, which has been running since 2014.

Australian citizens and permanent residents of all ages, backgrounds and fields of endeavour - including art, sport, music, medical research, science, technology and social innovation - can apply for grants of between $5,000 and $100,000 when applications open.

Check out the Tomorrow Makers page to learn more about the types of people we have provided grants to.

Grants can be used for a range of activities, including travel, equipment, study costs, research and more. Anything that can help you reach your goal with positive community impact will be considered for funding.

These grants recognise the power of an individual to create change, so organisations cannot apply. However, individual founders of small grassroots charities, small businesses or other groups can apply but must provide evidence that they are still the driving force. So too, researchers who are working within a larger team or institution can apply for a grant, but the funds must advance the individual’s work.

Yes, the Tomorrow Fund is open to individuals of all ages. However, applicants aged under 18 need the approval of a parent or guardian to apply. Permission can be provided via the application form and any communication will be directed to the adult. Of course, adults can help a young person with an application, but it must be submitted under the child’s name.

No. The Tomorrow Fund will only accept applications submitted by the individual who requires funding – that is, the application must be in their name. But we always appreciate people spreading the word and encouraging amazing friends or family members to apply.

If someone is having problems filling in or accessing an online application, they can email amp_foundation@amp.com.au for guidance.

Australian citizens and permanent residents can apply online via this website when applications open. The next launch date will appear on our homepage and will be promoted on social media.

AMP’s Tomorrow Fund is an initiative of the AMP Foundation, the philanthropic arm of AMP. Operating a series of charitable trusts, the AMP Foundation distributes income generated through its investments to the community. Since 1992, the AMP Foundation has invested more than $100 million into the community to help organisations and individuals bring about positive change.

AMP’s Tomorrow Fund is run in addition to the AMP Foundation’s existing charity work, which focuses on partnerships with non-profits that help Australians to build financial wellbeing. The AMP Foundation also supports AMP employees and advisers to give their time and resources to the community. For more, visit amp.com.au/ampfoundation.
