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).
