ANN INC.’s corporate giving program reflects the interests and passion of our associates, clients and businesses, while focusing on several distinct areas: breast cancer research, women’s empowerment, children’s health and education, and other social and environmental initiatives.
We have established partnerships with select organizations at a national level to have a maximum impact on the causes we support. Our national charitable partners include: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, and Vital Voices Global Partnership. We execute programs throughout the year in our stores, our corporate offices and online to support signature initiatives with our partners.
Once a year, we accept online applications for the ANNpower Vital Voices Initiative, a fellowship program for girls who are high school sophomores and juniors. ANNpower Fellows are eligible to receive project grants once they have completed the ANNpower Leadership Forum, a three-day leadership training program. To become an ANNpower Fellow, please visit ANNpower.org.
As we strive to develop meaningful partnerships with our grantees, we only contribute to pre-selected charitable organizations after a careful evaluation and selection process. Therefore, we do not accept or acknowledge unsolicited letters of inquiry, proposals or applications.
