We all make choices about what we wear. We wear our style. We wear our individuality. We wear our values. At TOMS, we are proud to wear our impact on our feet. When you buy TOMS, you help fund access to mental health resources for the millions of people who need them. We do this by giving ⅓ of profits for grassroots good, which includes investing in our impact partners who are building equity at the local level. Wear TOMS. WEAR GOOD.

Get to Know Our Partners
For us, grassroots good means forming deep partnerships with organizations that understand the challenges in their neighborhoods and supporting them with resources to bring solutions to life. Get to know three of the Impact Partners we worked with this year.
Mental Health Awareness Month
We encouraged our staff to complete the Be There Certificate training created by Jack.org in partnership with the Born This Way Foundation to empower each of us to support someone struggling with mental health. We also spent a few days at Camp Brave Trails, helping build bunk beds and prepare the camp.
World Mental Health Day
World Mental Health Day
On October 10th, in celebration of World Mental Health Day, we launched our TOMS 10X10 program, where we gave $10,000 USD grants to 10 mental health-focused organizations around the world.
About the Organizations
These ten organizations have significant mental health programming and an established record of providing tangible resources to their communities. Learn more about them and their work with local communities.
TOMS & Ukraine
This year we gave $100,000 USD to our longtime partner, International Medical Corps, to support their work in providing access to critical mental health services in and around Ukraine. We also donated $10,000 USD to Bright Kids, which helps Ukrainian families with children with disabilities.
We love it when our impact efforts come to life through unique collaborations and collections.
We collaborated with Happiness Project on a collection of footwear and apparel that supported and encouraged care for mental health. It also highlighted our Impact Partners Letters to Strangers and The Mix.
A special collection with multiple drops throughout the year, not just for PRIDE month. We support the LGBTQ+ community year-round, partnering with organizations like COLORS, which provides free and unlimited LGBTQ+ affirmative mental health care to young people and their families.
We honored Día de Los Muertos with a limited-edition collaboration featuring Xicanx printmaker Daniel González. With every TOMS purchase, you help to support organizations like Self Help Graphics & Art, which provides access to space, training, and capital for Chicano/a and Xicanx artists.

Ground-Up Change Starts With Us
In 2020, we made a long-term commitment to ensure our company and culture are rooted in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism.
We are a proud part of the rich and diverse Los Angeles community, and our goal is to be the best representation of the diversity of our hometown. This means creating structures and policies that address equity through the employee lifecycle—from applying, hiring, and onboarding processes to advancement, learning opportunities, and other internal development programs.

Creating Positive Change Together
We love spending time with our Impact Partners and seeing where we can provide support to their communities.
This year, our employees built mental health first aid kits for partners, helped Brave Trails prep for summer camp, and participated in Homeboy Industries’ 5K race.
Once a year, we close our global offices and dedicate an entire workday to volunteering with local nonprofits and the communities they serve.
This year, our Los Angeles office partnered with SuitUp, an organization that increases career readiness for all students through innovative business plan competitions. Internationally, our EMEA and APAC offices partnered with local community organizations.
Meet Our New HQ
2022 brought new changes to TOMS. We reduced our footprint and moved to a smaller, more efficient space in Culver City.
As part of bringing our new space to life, we invited local artists to share their interpretation of equity on our walls. The result? A beautiful, diverse, inspiring place for all.
