The Armadillo & Co Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2017 with its sole mission and purpose to enhance and improve the lives of underprivileged communities through the provision of educational, health and community structures.
Co-founders Jodie Fried and Sally Pottharst have a long history of giving back to the community.
They built Armadillo & Co on the principles of sustainability, Fair Trade and social responsibility, and held leadership roles at several other philanthropic ventures in India prior to establishing The Armadillo & Co foundation.
The Board of The Armadillo & Co Foundation is comprised of the executive team behind Armadillo & Co, as well as two external positions held in Australia and one external position held in India.
Each Board Member is involved on a voluntary basis, giving their time and expertise pro bono. Unbiased and diverse, these individuals are united by their shared passion to make a difference in disadvantaged communities, especially within the realm of education.
The Armadillo & Co Foundation is funded through part profits from Armadillo & Co sales, with $5 from each product sold contributed to the charity, as well as additional donations from online customers.
Further financial support is generated through the company’s Social Responsibility & Sustainability Committee, which includes both company-run and individual employee fundraising initiatives and events.
The foundation also accepts public individual and company donations.
