where there’s hope, there is grace

the hope & grace initiative represents an unprecedented and unending commitment by philosophy, the wellbeing beauty brand, to support mental health and wellbeing.

mental health issues are one of the greatest challenges women face. more than 450 million people worldwide suffer from mild to serious mental health issues – post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, self-esteem and financial stress – all of which disproportionately affect women around the world.

through the initiative, philosophy becomes the first company to place a deep focus on this important cause and the first major beauty company to make a brand-wide commitment to dedicate 1% of its usa net sales toward the cause.

philosophy seeks to empower the mental health and wellbeing movement by providing opportunities to raise global awareness of the issues, learn about and support effective organizations and provide resources to bring renewed hope to the lives our community.

the majority of funding from the hope and grace initiative will support community-based programs doing the most good in mental health and wellbeing. for every product sold (this includes all products, no limitations), philosophy will contribute 1% of sales to the hope & grace fund and will donate multiple financial grants each year to local organizations working to empower women through the promotion, prevention and treatment of mental health and wellbeing.

the hope and grace fund is being administered by the new venture fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to supporting innovative and effective public interest projects.
