AMP Foundation $3M NFP Job Creation Partnerships
Thursday, 3rd March 2016 at 10:20 am

The AMP Foundation is offering up to $3 million in funding partnerships with Not for Profits that are planning to or delivering innovative and evidence-based projects tackling unemployment and creating jobs.

Through its AMP Employment Boost initiative, the foundation said it was looking to form long-term partnerships with organisations that help disadvantaged Australians gain and maintain work – either through program delivery, thought leadership, community collaboration, social enterprise or other means.

AMP Foundation Chairman Richard Grellman said the initiative continued the foundation’s tradition of helping Not for Profits support disadvantaged Australians.

“We know employment is a key driver of economic wellbeing. Through AMP’s Employment Boost, we aim to provide support to organisations that think outside the box when it comes to
helping vulnerable people enjoy the social and financial benefits associated with steady work,” Grellman said.

“We are looking for long-term partnerships with a small number of innovative and effective Not for Profit organisations. The AMP Foundation partners with Not for Profits for the long term. Our
longest partnership spans 16 years and typically continue for at least eight years.”

He said AMP’s Employment Boost is looking for organisations that support Australian marginalised job seekers, including young people, mature Australians, people with disabilities, refugee and asylum seekers. As well the foundation is looking for communities that bring about systemic change that are experienced in delivering employment solutions and can provide evidence of outcomes.

“If it is a new project, there must be evidence of research undertaken and a plan to measure outcomes have an interest in and are capable of scaling up programs or collaborating with others to share their solution,” he said.

“Organisations that provide thought leadership or help build the capacity of other non-profits working in the employment space are also encouraged to apply. The AMP Foundation aims to support programs for disadvantaged people of all ages, gender and circumstances who live in Australia.

“Initial funding will range from $100,000 to $300,000 per annum and partnerships will run for three years with an additional three years possible, based on performance.”

Since 1992, the AMP Foundation has distributed over $80 million to the community.

Organisations can apply at boost.amp.com.au from 2 March until 4pm (AEST) on Monday 4 April.
