Brides for a Cause is a nonprofit organization that collects and resells wedding dresses to raise funds for charity. Originally founded as a for-profit business in 2012, Brides for a Cause recently became a nonprofit organization in 2016 to make a greater impact in the wedding industry. We are the only charity bridal store organization in the United States that isn’t tied to just one mission. Rather, our funds are dispersed among a variety of local and national charities that support and help women. This means, we are able to support a variety of nonprofit organizations from recycling wedding dresses, especially those our donors and brides believe in.
Each month, we partner with various local and national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to provide financial support. Types of beneficiaries we fund include those that:
- Support women with serious health issues, specifically pertaining to the top two women killers: cancer and heart disease
- Promote positive self-image and self-esteem for young women
- Support women in the military
- Provide relief for single mothers, abused women and women who are disabled
- Promote opportunities for women’s education and women in the workforce
Our monetary gifts are usually given in $5,000 increments. About 90% of our net income goes to directly to helping other charities. Since 2012, we have consistently donated between $80,000-$115,000 a year to charity! In just 4 years, we have collected over 6,000 wedding gowns and have donated over $415,000 to various women-focused charities around the country… and we couldn’t do it without our brides, bridal salon partners and designers, volunteers and supporters who have helped us from all over the world!
