AMP’s Tomorrow Fund is again seeking amazing Australians doing extraordinary things to share in $1 million worth of grants.
The annual program is open to individuals of all ages and walks of life, with varying interests and abilities, who are working towards a goal that will positively impact the community, but need help to make it happen.
The initiative, now in its fourth year, supports talented and innovative Australians with grants of up to $100,000 each. We call these remarkable individuals AMP Tomorrow Makers.
As diverse as Australia itself, these people are pursuing goals across many fields – from art to athletics, science to social innovation, music to medical research and more.
What they have in common is a desire to make a difference, either by creating something special or inspiring others.
With AMP’s support, so far 142 people are pursuing their goals, including:
- Michael Milford - who’s using popular entertainment to make maths fun and engaging
- Katia Ferrar - who is opening a free physio and podiatry clinic for homeless people
- Yarrie Bangura - a young entrepreneur with a traditional African drink business
- Tung Tran - a police investigator developing an app to gather crime scene evidence
- Diana Santleben - founder of a microfinance program for refugees in Newcastle.
You can find out more about them at the AMP Tomorrow Fund website.
Apply or share!
Applications for AMP Tomorrow Fund grants open on 3 April and close on 16 May at 4pm (AEST). To be eligible, you must apply online and tell us what your goal is, how you plan to go about it and the steps you’ve taken to move closer to it.
You can also register an expression of interest before 3 April and the AMP Foundation will send you more details on how to apply.

Posters, information sheets and a sample application are available for download from the ‘Tips and tools’ section of the AMP Tomorrow Fund website.
The price of childcare may be a deterrent to working, but loss of income, super and other benefits may cost more.
