A partnership with Brave Foundation lets consumers and employees know that you have an ongoing commitment to supporting the wider community, and giving back to young Australians in need.
Brave Foundation is an Australian not-for-profit charity that equips expecting and parenting teens with resources, referral and education opportunities to facilitate happy, healthy and skilled families over time.
Our corporate partnerships help us to provide programs throughout Australia that assist more than 24,000 teenage mothers to participate more fully in their education and create a better future for themselves.
Your commitment to partner with us will help us to support even more Australian teenage mothers.
Brave Foundation works with organisations to create mutually beneficial partnerships to communicate key messages based on common values and shared objectives.
A workplace giving program is set up by an employer and is the most tax effective, simple and powerful way that their employees can donate to a charity directly from their salaries.
A workplace giving program is easy for employers to set up and provides many benefits for both companies and employees while supporting a great cause. Employers can also choose to match their employee’s contributions dollar for dollar.
Donations are made through the payroll department, employees don’t need to do anything once they are set up.
Donations of more than two dollars are deducted from an employee’s salary before it is taxed, resulting in an immediate tax saving.
See the Workplace Giving page for more information.
Sponsoring Brave Foundation can work in a variety of ways and will bring a positive image to your company by addressing specific objectives whilst supporting young teenagers. It can help reach a target audience, increase brand awareness, motivate staff or show commitment to the local community.
Sponsorship opportunities range from high profile events and corporate functions through to advertising campaigns and fundraising materials.
Corporate volunteering is great for team building, staff morale and your company profile. By encouraging your staff to work together on fundraising projects, you give them the opportunity to develop as a team and acquire new skills.
Our corporate volunteer program will see your team members host a Fundraising Shower for World’s Biggest Baby Shower.
The fundraising shower can be held by your organisation at any time of the year. Attendees to the fundraising shower will give coin/note donations to Brave Foundation, with a minimum pledge amount of $50 per fundraising shower. The organisation will be equipped with online resources and fundraising shower ideas from Brave Foundation to assist in holding your WBBS event.
Brave Foundation’s National Awareness Project is its key education initiative.
They aim to support expecting and parenting teens to continue their education by making sure they are aware of, and have access to, existing support and education services. For schools and communities they will promote the importance of positive role models and will offer a Secondary Scholarship to encourage young parents to continue their education.
Another key aim is the uptake of the National Policy Standard for Secondary Schools – Support for expecting and parenting students. The Policy Standard encourages schools to provide a holistic support approach for long-term educational and family outcomes for expecting and parenting.
These aims will be achieved through the distribution of information to all secondary schools, hospitals and pregnancy support centres in Australia. They will receive a Brave Foundation resource pack that includes an introductory letter, information on the Policy Standard for secondary schools scholarship opportunities, Bernadette Black’s video, poster, and the resource book Brave Little Bear.
Brave Foundation Projects will empower teenage parents through access to knowledge and will help mobilise their local Village (or community) to provide this support.
We want expecting and parenting teens to be inspired and to access support and continue their education so they can have a brighter future.
Donating to this project will see distribution of Resource Packs in every secondary school in Australia.
Brave Foundation partners with and promotes existing pregnancy and parenting support services and educational opportunities, acting as a central point of reference for those seeking support.
Brave recognises that expecting and parenting teens need strong networks so they can develop the courage they need to step into their new role with confidence. It is well established that intervention initiatives, such as education and community support can have a positive effect on the future of expecting and parenting teens and the generations that follow.
