Since 1943, JOANN has been committed to making a positive impact on local communities and national causes that align with our core values.
Our charitable tenets include: Arts & Education, Health & Wellness and Military Support.
To optimize our charitable impact, we've partnered with these national organizations:
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. It is the place where great futures are started each and every day. They serve nearly 4 million young people, through membership and community outreach in some 4,000 Club facilities though the country and BCGA-affiliated Youth Centers on U.S. Military installations worldwide.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organization whose mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health. At this time there are about 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer.
The Kids In Need Foundation’s mission is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need. Kids In Need has distributed more than $700 million in school supplies since its founding, directly benefiting 4.2 million students and more than 120,000 teachers annually. They are a national 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 1995.
Founded in 1969, the National Military Family Association is the leading non-profit organization focusing on issues important to military families. They believe that all military families deserve comprehensive child care, accessible health care, spouse employment options, great schools, caring communities, a secure retirement, and support for widows and widowers.
With stores in more than 860 communities across the nation, JOANN receives thousands of requests for fundraising support each year that amount to far more than we can honor. Unfortunately, we cannot support every request, no matter how worthwhile. Please accept our best wishes for success in your fundraising efforts.
