Future Generation Investment Fund donates $116,000
Youth Focus is pleased to announce that it has received a donation of almost $116,000 from shareholders of the Future Generation Investment Fund (FGX).
A partner of Youth Focus since 2015, FGX is committed to making a difference to the lives of Australian children with a focus on children at risk. A unique aspect of the investment fund, FGX has a charitable goal of providing a source of funding to a number of designated charities.
With increased funding for the 2017 financial year, Youth Focus will assist more young people and families in Western Australia with face-to-face individual and family counselling dealing with mental health issues including depression, anxiety, self-harm and thoughts of suicide.
FGX contributed $88,000 to Youth Focus services last financial year. The donation was utilised to fund a Youth Focus counsellor based at its Burswood office. The counsellor provided intensive and ongoing face-to-face counselling to more than 60 young people aged 12-25 from the Burswood office and at a number of schools.
Youth Focus thanks FGX’s shareholders for their generosity in assisting young West Australians.
