Fathers of Girls (FOGS) is a nonprofit organisation made up of a group of fathers of only girls.
We are focused on creating a network of like minded fathers, who share experiences and learnings as we navigate a life with daughters.
We come together annually over lunch with the aim of raising money for local organisations that support girls in a positive and encouraging manner - something we all want for our daughters.
On behalf of the Confident Girls Foundation, I would like to thank you, your co-founders and the Father of Girls cohort for your wonderful support and recent contribution of $33,000 to the Foundation.
The events that you have created & managed at Netball association level and the annual lunch have been huge successes and the Foundation are pleased to direct the funds you have raised into Netball Queensland's Diamond Spirit Program.
The Queensland Father's of Girls organisation should be a blueprint for the rest of Australia! The combined benefits of raising the funds for socially disadvantaged girls in our communities, having fun events and involving daughters and families in those events is a winning strategy.
We applaud you all and thank you for your enthusiasm, initiative and generosity and we look forward to working with you again in 2022.
Best wishes for the festive season to all your families.
