Chico's Fas Cares

Chico’s FAS and our family of brands, Chico’s, White House Black Market and Soma, are committed to women with a focus on their well-being, health and empowerment. Through service and giving back, we positively impact our customers, associates and the communities in which we live and do business.

Our brand and corporate cause-related initiatives are focused on raising awareness and funds through local and national partnerships with organizations like Habitat for Humanity International, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, the American Red Cross and the National Network to End Domestic Violence, as well as regional, community-based philanthropic causes, disaster relief and associate volunteerism.

Our Corporate Citizenship in Action

Chico’s FAS is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity and share in their vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to call home. To date, we’ve built 48 homes in Southwest Florida, where our Company was founded, and five homes across the country to help families achieve their dreams of a better life. In 2018, we launched a new, national sponsorship of Habitat’s Women Build program and their Home is the Key campaign. In the first year of this partnership our Company raised and donated $1.3 million dollars to Habitat. In addition to building homes, Chico’s FAS is committed to impacting nearly 90 local communities across the country through dedicated grants.

Since 2004, we have been the strongest retail supporter of Living Beyond Breast Cancer. Together with our customers, Chico’s FAS has raised $8 million for LBBC helping connect thousands of women with a community of support. Funds we raise provide programs and services so that no one impacted by breast cancer will feel uninformed or alone.

National Network to end Domestic Violence

Bras are the most needed, yet least donated, item of clothing for women. We created the Soma Bra Donation to help women fleeing domestic abuse feel beautiful again. To date, we have collected nearly 2 million bras for women’s shelters across the country in partnership with the National Network to End Domestic Violence and I Support the Girls.

We are proudly committed to making a difference in Southwest Florida where we were founded and are headquartered, and in Winder, GA, where our distribution center is located. Through thousands of volunteer hours and monetary donations, Chico’s FAS supports more than 90 local organizations in Winder and Southwest Florida, including The American Heart Association, The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools and Dress for Success. Chico’s FAS is also top supporter of United Way with fundraising efforts reaching more than 225 programs and 75 local agencies.
