The Fashion Group Foundation, a 501c(3) organization, is the foundation arm of the Fashion Group International, a membership organization of professionals in fashion and related industries with regions in 26 cities globally.
“As a global organization with connections around the world, Fashion Group Foundation has established a fund: “Fashion Group – Help Ukraine” and is reaching out to our partners and community for support. We have partnered with Delivering Good, a New York-based 501(c)(3) organization, to assess needs and provide direct financial support to those in the Ukraine and refugees abroad,” says President and CEO, Maryanne Grisz, Fashion Group International.
According to Gary Simmons, Acting CEO for Delivering Good, “While the situation is still unfolding, Delivering Good will continue to evaluate and assess the situation and will be ready to act as needed.”
FGI will leverage its 26 active chapters and its members around the globe to raise awareness of and engagement with the charitable campaign. FGI chose to partner with Delivering Good for this cause given the charity’s record of efficiency, with more than 99% of revenue dedicated to its charitable program of distributing new apparel, accessories, home furnishings, and other useful items, resources, and funds. Since 1985, the organization has distributed nearly $3 billion of donated products through a network of community partners, serving individuals and families affected by poverty and disaster.
