We’re committed to making a positive impact on the world. And true to Glossier form, community is at the center of our approach. 

Glossier for Good invests in entrepreneurs and nonprofits expanding the definition of beauty with their products, programs, and initiatives.

  • Through our projects, including The Glossier Grant Program and charitable Glossier Goods, we’re giving underrepresented founders and communities the resources they need to take their work to the next level.
  • The Glossier Grant Program invests in Black beauty entrepreneurs to address legacies of inequity, exclusion, and barriers to fundraising.
  • Each retail store has merchandise benefiting a local nonprofit that supports entrepreneurs and youth, particularly women and people of color. In under 2 years, we’ve raised over $600,000 for those partners.

We’ve invested over $1.1m towards visionary Black entrepreneurs in beauty. And we’re just getting started. 

  • Since 2020, we’ve partnered with 30+ founders leading 26 innovative beauty brands, sharing grant funding, curated business programming, resources and time. 
  • We’re thrilled to expand this program to the UK in partnership with Black Girl Fest—learn more here
