The Glossier Grant Program


Our vision is to change how the world sees beauty.

We can’t do that without changing our industry first. The Glossier Grant Program invests in Black beauty entrepreneurs to address legacies of inequity, exclusion, and barriers to fundraising.

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 through our partnership with Black Girl Fest. We’ve invested over $1.1m towards visionary Black entrepreneurs in beauty and we’re just getting started.
