Supre has committed $1 million in support to a not-for-profit organisation assisting Indigenous girls and young women.
Stars Foundation is set to receive the funding over 2023/2024, with the pledge directly supporting more than 400 First Nations females aged 16 to 18 years in the Northern Territory.
The funding is double the amount pledged in 2021/2022, when Supre contributed $500,000 to support 200 education places for young women.
Supre GM Jodie Bongetti confirmed the partnership would continue over the next two years.
“Stars Foundation is positively impacting so many lives, and it’s with this shared ethos that we are deeply connected to their mission,” Bongetti said. “We are thrilled to be committing $1 million over two years to continue to make a positive difference in the lives of others through Stars Foundation.”
Supre has released a capsule collection to coincide with the pledge, distributing 100% of proceeds to partners of its charity arm Supre Foundation. The 'Essentials Range' includes a lip balm, hand sanitiser and mints manufactured in Australia from vegan ingredients.
Stars Foundation and executive director Andrea Goddard welcomed the contribution.
“Supre Foundation recognises the importance and impact of our work and are demonstrating their deep commitment to making a difference in the lives of Indigenous girls and young women."
Supre is owned and operated by Cotton On Group, which launched a formal Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) last year.
The 'Reflect' RAP includes 14 time-bound targets across Governance, Opportunities, Relationships and Respect to September, 2023. This includes increasing First Nations recruitment, retention and professional development opportunities.
