HELPING COMMUNITIES FLOURISH AND GROW

We serve those communities through empowerment programs, financial and product donations, and volunteering, to make a positive impact on society.

Volunteering


Serving the local community is part of our ethos. In 2018, more than 2,000 volunteers contributed over 6,000 company-sponsored hours to great causes—from packing food for the hungry, to counseling women re-entering the workforce. Our Coach and kate spade new york Foundations support these service hours with grants to nonprofits where we serve.
