Coach is known for classic, modern, American styling. From handbags and shoes, to accessories and clothes, their unique and powerful style has captured the eyes of sartorially minded shoppers across the globe. Although most of us are familiar with the stylish designs of Coach, what you may not know is that Coach takes the same level of passion they have for the things they make and applies it to the things they do. Coach believes that we all have a social responsibility to help one another and stand up for what is right. In practice, these values show in their commitment to integrity in their operations, and their philanthropy, materialized in projects such as the Coach Foundation.
The Coach Foundation, started in 2008, works to champion organizations that empower, educate, and support women and children around the world. The foundation focuses on two program areas. The first, the Coach Women’s Initiative, explores the best opportunities to help women fully realize their potential by supporting programs that encourage personal and economic empowerment. The second, the Coach Education Initiative, focuses on improving educational opportunities for the underserved, in order to provide everyone with the opportunity to learn, grow and meaningfully contribute to our society.
Most recently, Coach co-hosted an event at J.J. Abrams’ company Santa Monica headquarters, Bad Robot, where celebrities, such as: Olivia Munn, Malin Akerman, Ali Larter, Kristen Bell, and Jenna Dewan, shopped Coach bags. The proceeds of the event’s purchases went to support the Children’s Defense Fund, a non-profit child advocacy organization that has worked relentlessly for nearly 40 years to ensure a level playing field for all children.
