Board of Directors

The day-to-day administration of the Foundation is undertaken by a Management Committee, with all the administrative duties and costs being met by volunteers' time. This support enables the Foundation to operate on a unique 'dollar in / dollar out' basis, ensuring that every dollar donated is allocated directly to the Foundation and its Grants (ie. no funds are used for administration, marketing or advertising etc).

Foundation Chairman and Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Mr Philip Lowe, announces the total amount raised at this year’s Gala Ball.

The Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors, chaired by Mr Philip Lowe, Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, who is joined by the heads of Australia's leading banks. They include:
