In the past, Why Warriors has run all operations from a private company ‘Why Warriors Pty Ltd’, started by Tim and Richard Trudgen fifteen years ago. This company operates as a Social Enterprise with all of our available dollars going into our groundbreaking non-profit work with Yolŋu.
However, being a private company has severely limited our ability to raise sufficient funds, no matter how charitable we have been or how effective our programs are. So a new non-profit organisation called Why Warriors Org Ltd is being readied to launch in the New Year.
Big thanks to our lawyers at Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills Pty Ltd for their probono legal help and to the new board of directors that has stepped up to the job.
