Who We Support
Thirty-One believes in celebrating, encouraging and rewarding others for who they are, and one of the ways we carry out that mission is through our charitable program, Thirty-One Gives.
When we learned that a girl’s self-esteem peaks at age 91, we knew we had to do something about this confidence crisis. Through Thirty-One Gives, we are working together to empower girls, women and families with the support and self-esteem needed to lead purposeful, thriving lives.
We believe strong, confident girls will grow up to become strong, compassionate women, who will be the driving force behind strong, healthy families and communities.
To help us carry out our mission, we’re proud to partner with many non-profit organizations, nationally and in our Home Office communities that share our mission to build confident girls and women and strengthen families.

Standing Strong for Her
Supporting and empowering women is one of the three pillars of the Thirty-One Gives mission, which is why the issue of domestic violence is so close to our hearts.
During Domestic Violence Awareness Month – October in the U.S./November in Canada – our annual Standing Strong for Her campaign will focus on bringing awareness to this issue and raising funds to support survivors.
This season our campaign supports the National Network to End Domestic Violence in the U.S. and Canadian Network of Women’s Shelters & Transition Houses in Canada, with the goal of raising awareness and $40,000 to support women who are escaping abusive relationships and to empower survivors to rebuild their lives.
