Liz Claiborne Foundation

Established in 1981, the Liz Claiborne Foundation supports nonprofit organizations working with women to achieve economic independence by supporting multi-dimensional programs that offer essential job readiness training and increase access to tools that help women, including those affected by domestic violence, transition from poverty into successful independent living.

Liz Claiborne Inc.'s founders set up and endowed the Liz Claiborne Foundation to serve as the company's center for charitable activities for many years to come. The Liz Claiborne Foundation, a separate nonprofit legal entity, is the source of support for nonprofit organizations in the U.S. communities where Liz Claiborne Inc.'s primary offices are located. These include the five boroughs of New York City; Hudson County, New Jersey; and Los Angeles County, California.

In addition, a small portion of their grants may be directed to national organizations addressing a critical issue for women -- economic independence.
