AMP Opens Million Dollar Grant Fund

Who can apply?

Australian citizens and permanent residents of all ages and abilities can apply for an AMP Tomorrow Fund grant. We’re looking for determined people with big dreams who just need some help to bring them to life.

They may be passionate about solving community problems or lifting spirits with their music, art or words. Maybe they have an ingenious invention in mind or show real strength of character on the sports field.

What they share is a desire to make a difference, either by creating something special or inspiring others. These are people who have put in the hard yards and are ready to leap to the next level. The only thing stopping them is a lack of funds.

AMP’s Tomorrow Fund wants to remove the barrier by giving out grants of between $10,000 and $100,000 to help them with costs such as travel, living expenses and research – or whatever it takes to achieve their dream.

If you or someone you know has what it takes to be an AMP Tomorrow Maker, apply by 4pm on 14 May.
