The AMP Foundation
Since 1992, the AMP Foundation has invested more than $100 million into the community to help organisations and individuals bring about positive change.
We support non-profits that help Australians build financial security and better futures. We also help AMP employees and financial advisers to give back through pro bono work, mentoring, volunteering, fundraising and payroll giving.
The AMP Foundation helps individuals, too. AMP’s Tomorrow Fund - our annual $1 million grants program - supports Australians of all ages, walks of life and interests who are making a difference in their community.
We also invest in social benefit financial instruments and social enterprises that achieve both a commercial investment and demonstrated social outcomes.
Our community partners
The AMP Foundation takes a strategic approach to philanthropy by forming long-term partnerships with a small group of non-profit organisations. We typically provide support for growth funding, which enables an organisation to grow or replicate a program, or core infrastructure to fund a vital role.
Our partners include:
- First Australians Capital helps Indigenous entrepreneurs to grow sustainable businesses. The AMP Foundation is a founding partner.
- Global Sisters supports disadvantaged women to create and run successful businesses.
- The Stroke Association of Victoria (SAV) runs the Stay at Work program, which supports working-aged stroke patients to return to employment.
- STREAT runs hospitality social enterprises that provide training and employment support for at-risk youth.
- Wesley Mission operates the Take Charge Of Your Life program, which helps young people to transition from the care system and into employment.
- The Conversation is an independent online news network that sources articles from the academic community. Our funding helps shine a light on employment obstacles and solutions.
- Vanguard Laundry Services is a social enterprise that employs and supports people with a lived experienced of mental illness.
- Settlement Services International (SSI) supports the settlement of refugees in Australia, including helping them to secure sustainable employment.
- The Funding Network Australia supports grassroots charities through live crowdfunding events. The AMP Foundation is a founding partner.
The AMP Foundation has been funding the Cancer Council Pro Bono Program since 2010. This national initiative enables AMP financial advisers to provide free advice to people affected by cancer who could not otherwise afford it.
Funding and governance
AMP Foundation has a capital base, or corpus, which AMP has contributed to through donations of money and shares. We use the investment income from the corpus to fund community investment initiatives, as well as fund our running costs.
