Here are organizations we’re proud to support in service of that goal:

Worldwide, women have much less economic opportunity, security, and freedom. We support women starting their own businesses, going to school, and investing in the health of their communities and families.

Charity: water logo

charity: water is on a mission to bring clean and safe water to every person on the planet. We support their mission in honor of Letikiros Hailu, a young 13-year old girl who never made it home from a 10-hour journey to collect fresh water.

Malala Fund logo

We believe every girl deserves an education. The Malala Fund is working toward a world where all girls can learn for 12 years and lead without fear.
