The year is almost over and the New Year’s celebrations are about to begin.
New Year’s is all about celebrating; from the end of one year to ringing in the start of another, the evening is really an excuse to get dressed up and go all out glamorous. But just because the year is ending doesn’t mean we have to stop giving back. These companies give back and will help you get ready for the evening, wherever your plans may take you.
Saks Fifth Avenue
One of the top names for designer clothing, shoes and accessories, Saks Fifth Avenue can help you get ready for any type of party. Beyond finding your perfect party dress, the luxury department store works on a number of initiatives through their parent company the Hudson Bay Company Foundation. The company focuses on four key areas such as contributing to a sustainable environment, ethical sourcing for their products, investing in their employees and giving back to communities. They’ve also provided support to several charitable partners such as the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Beauty Gives Back and more.
Looking for the best bag to carry everything you’ll need for the night? Coach, the multinational luxury retailer, is known for the variety of bags they sell, from handbags to clutches and more. While you find your new favorite handbag you’ll also be supporting the Coach Foundation, which to date has donated over $39 million to charities supporting disaster relief, cultural programs in New York City and women’s health. The foundation has also partnered with Step Up, a nonprofit organization that supports young women in under-resourced urban communities.
Everyone knows New Year’s Eve is all about sparkle and shine. So brighten up your night with some fancy jewelry from Helzberg Diamonds while you save money and donate to a nonprofit or charity all at the same time. The company strives to make sure their products are produced under the highest social, human rights and environmental standards and regularly evaluate the risks of slavery and human trafficking in mining practices.

Rent the Runway
Want designer duds for the evening but not at the typical costs? Rent the Runway has you covered (literally) with hundreds of designer dresses you can rent for a period of time from four to eight days and receive a backup dress as well. What could be better? Maybe the fact that in addition to donating a percentage of what you spend to a charity or cause, you’ll also support Project Entrepreneur, a nonprofit that aims to provide women with the tools, training and networks to build scalable, economically impactful companies. The company hopes to break the barriers that women face when starting companies, which you can learn more about at their Coupons for Good page.
