As a women’s fashion house, we’re committed to empowering women and girls. Guided by the passion of our executive leadership, we regularly contribute product donations, financial support and volunteer hours to non-profits and community partners that share our values.

Our Community Partners:
Cause We Care Foundation

Founded by women to help women, the Cause We Care Foundation strives to provide a hand up to disadvantaged single mothers and their children. In 2014, we launched the Full of Heart social media initiative, making a donation to Cause We Care for each photo tagged #FullofHeart on Instagram. Additionally, the Aritzia team regularly volunteers at fundraising events, and we worked with Cause We Care on a t-shirt collaboration, with all proceeds going to the organization.

Dress for Success

Dress for Success promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and career development tools to help them thrive in work and in life. Aritzia supports Dress for Success with both product donations and financial support. Our leaders also provide guidance and mentorship to the organization.

The Minerva Foundation

The Minerva Foundation is focused on changing the face of leadership in B.C. by helping women and girls reach their potential. For several years, Aritzia has sponsored the Minerva Foundation’s Learning to Lead weekend for grade 11 girls, providing executive mentors, financial sponsorship and custom t-shirts.

Union Gospel Mission

The UGM works to overcome poverty, homelessness and addiction, one life at a time. Aritzia donates product directly to women in need and to support the UGM’s Teen Girl Program, which teaches life skills to girls in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Throughout the year, the Aritzia team regularly volunteers to serve meals to those in need.

The Good Soup Truck

The Good Soup Truck is a mobile soup kitchen providing comfort and hunger relief to single parents, children and anyone else in need. By delivering nourishing, delicious meals within our local community, the organization’s ultimate goal is for guests to experience the warmth and sustenance that healthy soup can provide. Aritzia is directly supporting families in need by sponsoring a night of dinner service from The Good Soup Truck each week, providing both financial support and volunteers to serve the meals.

The Forum for Women Entrepreneurs

The Forum for Women Entrepreneurs energizes, educates, mentors and connects women entrepreneurs to be wildly successful, promoting strengthened economies and thriving communities. Aritzia supports FWE through executive mentorship and financial sponsorship.
