Pro Bono Program

A program designed to unite FAAA members with individuals and families facing financial hardship.

Through our Pro Bono Program, the FAAA is proud to connect its members with opportunities to deliver pro bono advice and make a significant difference to the lives of Australians in need.

Volunteering your expertise provides members with an opportunity to give back to their community, reducing stress and the burden on those experiencing financial hardship. Donating your time can be an extremely rewarding experience and we actively encourage you to get involved and join a trusted network of passionate professionals

Pro Bono Financial Advice Network

Established in 2014, the Pro Bono Financial Advice Network (PFAN) is an independent network that connects advisers with clients who are living with a serious illness and experiencing significant financial hardship.

PFAN works with multiple industry referral partners, including FAAA, to support a range of charities including MS Australia, Motor Neurone Disease and Pancare. Through PFAN, advisers commit to taking on one (or more) pro bono financial advice cases a year to make a life changing difference for individuals who need access to financial advice but can’t afford it.

Cancer Council Pro Bono Program

Since June 2017 we’ve worked closely with the Cancer Council Pro Bono Program to match advisers with people affected by cancer.

The program aims to contribute to the wellbeing of cancer patients by accessing Centrelink benefits, applying for early access to superannuation, developing strategies for lump sum insurance payouts and planning for the financial future of their family.
