The AMP Foundation received an overwhelming response to our $2 million COVID-19 Community Boost grants program, with more than 700 charities applying.
The overwhelming response highlighted the enormous need that exists within our community, with many charities reporting fundraising income losses, an increased demand for support services, a critical need for investment in technology and the significant social and economic impact on the most vulnerable members of our community.
We are pleased to announce our grant recipients, who will use the funds for a range of purposes - including salaries, equipment, training and technology - to help them build capacity and meet community need in this time of great change.
