Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP)
Grants of up to $40,000 to USA nonprofit organizations that offer free financial advice and services to disadvantaged populations. Funding is intended to support new or established programs, or for new financial planning elements that will enhance an existing program. In addition, the new Alexandra Armstrong Innovation Grant is given to a nonprofit organization that demonstrates remarkable creativity and potential for impact in its programming.
The Fund is looking to support programs that are scalable, replicable, and sustainable. Programs funded may offer one-time counseling engagements and/or ongoing coaching relationships between volunteers and clients.
FFP focuses on funding programs that enable planners to meet one-on-one with people in need so that guidance can be personalized and customized to individual circumstances, as opposed to programs that provide financial literacy in group settings without the opportunity for one-on-one interaction. Grants have supported programs helping many diverse groups, including active military members and wounded veterans, people with cancer, seniors and family caregivers, domestic violence survivors, general low-income families, and many others.

The grant is awarded annually to a nonprofit organization that demonstrates remarkable creativity and potential for impact in its programming.
