I&D Commitment No. 9 – One Year Progress Report


We are excited to share that The PVH Foundation has granted $1.37 million USD to 14 organizations worldwide, all of which has supported over 4,300 participants through various programming and projects across countries, age groups and socioeconomic status. This reflects the progress made in year one of our four-year commitment to invest $10 million USD with global nonprofit organizations to support programming and initiatives that enhance awareness of, and access to, opportunities in the fashion industry for underrepresented communities. In addition, over 100 PVH associates have helped make an impact through over 300 hours of volunteering with various partner organizations. Key highlights include:
