Tomorrow Fund

Funder:  AMP Foundation

Grant Background: AMP’s Tomorrow Fund is giving amazing Australians doing great things the chance to share $1 million in grants. It’s open to individuals of all ages, walks of life, interests and abilities who have put a lot of time and effort into reaching a goal that will positively impact the community, but need help to take it to the next level.
