Australia's leading sportswomen are finally beginning to get the recognition and focus that they deserve. The industry is making huge strides in levelling the playing field, and in parallel, the growth of Minerva since our launch five years ago has been simply astounding.

It is clear that we are filling a gap in the essential support needed by sportswomen, and we are proud of the impact we are having on these future leaders of Australia.  


We wouldn't be in this position without our supporters generously donating their time, money and expertise to allow us to rapidly increase our ability to enable Australia's sportswomen to thrive and fulfil their potential as leaders and role models.

But we can’t stop here - we have set ourselves a goal to support 1000 sportswomen by 2025 to truly change the game for women in sport. With your continued support, we are confident of reaching that milestone.


We ask you to please make a tax deductible donation to Minerva Network to support us in our essential work.

The Impact of your Donation

Your donation allows Minerva to increase the number of athletes that we support, as well as to extend our support of athletes. Our goal is to be supporting and connected with 1000 professional athletes by 2025 to ensure they are the best leaders and role models they can be. 

With your support we can build leadership skills and confidence, help athletes transition from sport into the next phase of their careers and raise the profile of women in sport.

Thanks to the support of our donors and partners, Minerva has made some incredible achievements: 

  • Welcomed almost 100 new athletes to the Network- 360 athletes are now part of Minerva Network, from across 60 different sports.
  • More than 260 of the most senior women in Australia donate their time as Minerva Mentors. 
  • Launched a project to link leading women with opportunities to join Sporting Boards, helping to increase the gender diversity in leadership positions across Australian sport.
  • Delivered webinars and workshops across Australia on key topics such as: Your Money Your Future, Holistic Health for Women in High Performance Sport and Transferable Skills: an athlete's superpower.


Donating now is your opportunity to help us to grow to the next level and propel gender equality and women's empowerment across Australia.
