This month, actuaries will be receiving their annual reminder to renew their IFoA subscription. The IFoA and the IFoA Foundation are taking this opportunity to reach out to the membership, thanking those who have generously supported the Foundation so far and explaining more about the work it has done since its launch in 2020.
After an exciting first year, with income targets exceeded and several grant programmes launched and in development, the Foundation is embarking on an ambitious three-year plan that builds on the success of the past 12 months. With the backing of the actuarial community, it is well placed to deliver on its objectives and build a sustainable income model that will enable it to have major impact for years to come. Although large donations have been gratefully received, members are asked to consider signing up and making smaller, regular gifts that will support the Foundation’s longer-term goals – to open every door for the next generation of actuaries and empower the profession to be transformative in addressing the greatest global challenges of our time.
IFoA president Louise Pryor said: “If every member gave just £2 this year, the Foundation would be able to deliver against each of its goals for the next year. If this donation is repeated annually, members will be laying the foundations for sustainable charitable impact in years to come. The Foundation’s work spans many important areas – including providing opportunity to young actuaries facing financial hardship, promoting diversity and inclusion in the profession, and addressing global challenges in our society, working in partnership with the IFoA. Actuaries have always given back, and I hope the membership will continue this long history by supporting the IFoA Foundation.”
