IFoA Foundation

Welcome to the IFoA Foundation

The IFoA Foundation is a recently formed charity which is an amalgamation of all the profession's previous charities.

Our mission now is to raise funds to support our community and achieve our goal of Actuaries Supporting Others.  

I am delighted to see the Foundation launched during my year as President. We now have a real focus on supporting the actuarial profession, both in the UK and overseas, so much good will come from this initiative. 

Tan Suee Chieh, President of the IFoA 2020-21

We have three objectives

Rewarding Excellence

Providing recognition, prizes, and awards for excellence in actuarial examinations and academic research

Supporting our community

Giving bursaries and grants to university students, those studying the actuarial examinations and others in financial hardship

Addressing future challenges

Supporting the IFoA’s public interest responsibilities and partnering with other charities on financial education

I am extremely excited to launch the IFoA Foundation.  The overarching aim for the Foundation is to bring actuaries together to support others and I look forward to your enthusiasm and involvement. The other Trustees and I are pleased to work with you to make an impact to our community and the actuarial profession as a whole. 

Kartina Tahir Thomson, Chair of Trustees
