About The Stella & Dot Foundation:

The Stella & Dot Foundation was conceived in July 2010 by Stella & Dot CEO & Founder Jessica Herrin. The mission of the Stella & Dot Foundation is to create positive change in women's lives through education and economic empowerment.  All net proceeds from the sale of the Stella & Dot Foundation bracelets and charms support ACCION USA, buildOn, and Girls Inc. ACCION USA empowers low to moderate income women with training, resources, and ongoing support to start and grow their business. buildOn empowers people and transforms lives by partnering after school service programs in the U.S. with communities in developing countries to build schools. Girls Inc. is serving girls in at-risk communities who most need positive, supportive afterschool environments (U.S. & Canada). In addition to their three core charity partners, Stella & Dot also celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and Autism Awareness Month in April.  Through the sale of signature bracelets, significant funds have been raised towards these causes that are very close to the Stella & Dot community.  To-date, the Stella & Dot Foundation has raised over $750,000.
