The FPA’s National Financial Planning Support Center, which has supported pro bono programs offered by local FPA chapters since 2001, has received a $295,000 grant from the Foundation for Financial Planning to continue its efforts. Founded shortly after 9/11 to help families affected by the terrorist attacks, the Center has since expanded its pro bono efforts through the more 100 local FPA chapters to low income people, victims of domestic violence, and military personnel and their families serving overseas.

The Foundation (www.foundation-finplan.org) has awarded more than $2 million in grants to nonprofit organizations that connect the financial planning community with those in need since 1998.
