With your help, Grande Cosmetics is on a mission to elevate women who are marginalized and underserved in the workforce to financial independence.

Grande4Women

Starting on October 1st, 2021, 4% of all sales revenue from our website will be donated to Working for Women until the goal of 200k is met. Proceeds from all products purchased will now be reinvested in the world’s greatest resource…women. Along with our financial pledge, Alicia Grande and the rest of Grande will participate in mentoring workshops with Working for Women’s non-profit partners. These will focus on skill-building tools that help women find their place and remain in the workforce.

Why Working for Women?

Did you know?

1) The majority of the jobs lost since April 2020 were held by women, now widely referred to as a "She-cession?"

2) Only 1.6% of all charitable giving goes to women & girls?

With 5.4 million fewer women in the workforce than two years ago and less than 2% of charitable funding, the need to support women is at an all-time high. As a women-run company, we knew it was time to do our part in changing this.

Grande Cosmetics is joining forces with Working for Women (W4W) as their non-profit partner because W4W builds purposeful partnerships between businesses and nonprofits working to help women achieve financial independence. With this partnership, Grande Cosmetics aims to ignite a flame that restores a pandemic ravaged subset of the economy – businesses built, run and lead by women.

they feel this cause is true to our DNA as a company

“The goal is two-fold. We want to not only help women restore their economic strength after the pandemic, but regain their confidence to do what it takes to maintain their financial independence.”

— Alicia Grande, Founder & CEO of Grande Cosmetics

“We focus on women who are too often overlooked – those who need a lift just to get into and stay in the workforce. Our unique model is to engage businesses in helping elevate all women to economic independence and having a woman-run company like Grande Cosmetics on board is a great boost to meet the need."

— Beth Bengtson, founder and CEO of W4W

"Grande Cosmetics truly "walks the walk". Before I started working here, when I was just a consumer, I could tell they were all about women empowerment—now that I've been working here for a while I can say whole-heartedly IT'S TRUE! Grande4Women is not just a passion project but the mindset of the brand, it's founder, and all of us here at Grande!"

— Donna Rogan, Partnership Marketing Manager

"I started at Grande fresh out of college & was given the opportunity to learn & grow into the my dream position as Creative Director. None of this would've been possible without the skills I learned from furthering my education & the mentorship of our founder and our head of marketing, Alicia & Dena. I can confidently say how working hard & having women who believe in you can completely transform your career path and your belief in yourself - because I’ve lived it firsthand! :)"

— Chelsea Merola, Creative Director at Grande Cosmetics
