The Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP) helps people take control of their financial lives by connecting the financial planning community with people in need. We achieve this by supporting pro bono financial planning for underserved populations. FFP grants ranging from $5,000 - $300,000 will be awarded to IRS recognized 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations.
To be considered, projects need to utilize financial planning professionals as volunteers in pro bono financial planning, or in partnership with local affiliates of financial planning organizations, such as: The Financial Planning Association (FPA) Chapter Pro Bono or Community Outreach Committees; The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA); CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP) professionals. Projects should focus on under-served communities.
Grant projects should help people take control of their financial lives by connecting the financial planning community with people in need with the goal of helping individuals and families build a stable financial future.
Deadline to apply is April 30, 2015. For full information on how to apply, click here. For information on Micro-Grants (up to $1,250) click here.
