Morris Children's Fund Inc was established in 2005 as St George Children with Disabilities Fund Inc.

The Fund was established by it's current Secretary, Garry Morris OAM. After many years of supporting local community organisations, Garry recognised that there was limited support available to children with severe physical and multiple disabilities and their families.

Initially known as St George Children With Disabilities Fund Inc, in 2021 it was decided to rename it Morris Children's Fund for a number of reasons including to broaden the geographic scope of our activities to include St George, the Sutherland Shire and Western Sydney.

Morris Children's Fund is a small charity which relies on volunteers. The Board of the fund comprises local community and business people with a range of experience and expertise in the employment, education and disability sectors.
