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 became a nonprofit organization in 2016 and gained its 501(c)3 status in 2017 to make a greater impact in the wedding industry. Instead of being tied to just one mission, our funds are dispersed among a variety of local and national women-focused charities.

Each year, 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-$20,000 increments. About 90% of our net income goes to directly to helping other charities.  Since 2012, we’ve given over $570,000 (and counting!) to charity!

In 2017, we gave away $120,000!
