About the role

The Warrior Woman Foundation is an Australian charity registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission at www.acnc.gov.au. It is a Public Company Limited by Guarantee and Public Benevolent Institution. The foundation is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient and a Tax Concession Charity by the Australian Taxation Office. 

We are a brand new organisation which started in March 2020, however we are very experienced team who have worked in the NFP sector for over 18 years .

The Warrior Woman Foundation was formed to bring like-minded people together to identify and create ways to support the young women of Australia who are our future, ensuring they are seen, heard and valued. We are a strong and active national women’s support movement of positive women who are mothers, business owners, community leaders, as well as advocates for the advancement of women in Australia. We are kind and caring people who genuinely want to create positive change for the female population. By empowering vulnerable young women to become strong independent warriors capable of taking their place in the world, we are strengthening Australian communities at large.

We are a small but growing “tribe” who are extremely passionate about the protection of children and the advancement of young women. We are all about teamwork, being ethical in everything we do and enjoy working with like-minded volunteers who we value.
