Governance

The Trustee for the Mothers of Boys Fund is a Public Ancillary Fund and a registered charity.  The Fund is endorsed by the Australian Tax Office with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.

Governance of the Fund is via a six member Trustee Board of Directors who volunteer their time and expertise to the charity to achieve our Mission and Vision.

MissionMothers of Boys Australia aims to provide a forum for networking for mothers of only sons. Through its fun and enjoyable events and sale of merchandise, it raises funds for charities which benefit Australian children and adults.

Vision: The Mothers of Boys vision is to create a nation-wide network for Mothers of (only) boys with chapters in all states and territories of Australia and in regions within those sectors.  Ultimately Mothers of Boys would like to expand internationally.
