Governance

The Smith Family Constitution

Each year thousands of generous individuals contribute to support our educational learning and support programs for disadvantaged children across Australia.

We are committed to ensuring this support is used in the best possible way, and strictly adhere to regulations and relevant policies to uphold this commitment.

The Constitution of The Smith Family provides the overarching governance structure that enables us to achieve our mission in a way that is consistent with our vision, values and strategy, creating opportunities for young Australians in need by providing long-term support for their participation in education.
