A tribute to a remarkable and generous man

It is with great sadness OzChild acknowledges the recent passing of Mr Brian M Davis AM.

Mr Davis was a long-term supporter of OzChild through his charitable foundation, and as such was a powerful advocate for vulnerable children and young people.

His significant service to the community through philanthropy was suitably recognised in the 2021 Australia Day Honours List.

The generosity of donors like the Brian M Davis Charitable Foundation is critical to ensuring OzChild can continue to give young people who have experienced vulnerabilities in life improved means to be safe, respected and nurtured, and reach their full potential.

The Brian M Davis Charitable Foundation’s generosity is contributing to our Thriving Families program which supports our most precious volunteers: our foster and kinship carers.

Mr Davis’ kindness and generosity has changed the lives of many, and his Legacy will continue through the work we do.

OzChild was humbled to be one of the numerous charitable beneficiaries of Mr Davis’ selfless generosity. The Board and staff of OzChild share our most sincere condolences with his family and friends.
