Our Cause

Our Mission

Brides for a Cause is a nonprofit organization that collects and resells wedding dresses to raise funds for charity. To-date, we have collected over 25,000 wedding dresses and given away $1.875 Million to charity.

Our Charitable Partners

Brides for a Cause partners with various local and national nonprofit organizations to provide financial support. Our charitable partners must be a 501(c)3 and support women in some way.

Types of women’s causes served through our organization include those that:

  • Support women with serious health issues, specifically pertaining to the top two causes of death in women: 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 with disabilities

Have a charity you want us to consider supporting? Nominate a Charity!

Our Gifts

Each year, Brides for a Cause disperses hundreds of thousands of dollars that are raised from reselling the donated wedding gowns to various women’s causes. All monetary gifts are approved by our board of directors. Most gift amounts are between $10,000-$50,000.

In 2022, we gifted a record breaking $450,000 to 40 local and nonprofit women focused charities that are supporting, protecting and propelling women forward!

To date, we’ve raised over $2,000,000 for women’s causes and counting!

Donating or purchasing from Brides for a Cause makes a difference!
