Future2 Foundation has committed $1.6m in grants since 2007 to grassroots programs. We fund projects that contribute to skills training, financial literacy, work experience, community service, mentoring and much more.
Anne Graham is a previous Trustee of the Future2 Foundation. She and David Graham have also taken part in fund-raising activities including a recent trip to Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to raise funds for the foundation.
Effective Financial Planning and preparation for the future starts at school. Sadly, many young people are financially illiterate and do not understand the implications of some of the decisions they need to make about funding university studies, budgeting, investing and more.
Anne Graham conducts seminars for upper secondary students to raise their awareness about issues such as budgeting (spending, saving, investing), managing HECS, general debt management skills and solutions, investing, and compound interest. When students are introduced to these concepts in Anne’s practical and interesting fashion they realise the importance of starting to plan their financial future immediately, rather than waiting until they have a substantial income. These students are more likely to be proactive in their saving and investing, and restrain their spending because they have a bigger vision.
