FFP powers pro bono financial planning for people in crisis or need by: providing grants to local and national nonprofits to create and expand pro bono programs, helping activate volunteer financial planners, developing innovative pro bono program models, offering free financial planning resources, and raising the visibility of pro bono service within the financial planning profession. We focus much of our grantmaking and other efforts on areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact, including programs for military and veterans, programs for people with cancer, and activating volunteers in partnership with our national strategic partner, the Financial Planning Association.
HOW TO APPLY
Each year, FFP awards grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to fund the development of programs connecting volunteer financial planners to individuals and families in crisis or need.
This year, FFP is proud to support 17 organizations leading pro bono financial planning programs for active military and veterans, low-income seniors, domestic violence survivors, people with cancer, and many more.
Training and Resources
FFP supports the development of financial planning program models that can be replicated and scaled for greater impact. We also offer turnkey resources for those interested in launching or growing similar pro bono programs in their communities.
