SHEIN, a leading global e-retailer of fashion, beauty and lifestyle products, today announced the launch of the SHEIN Cares Fund. This multi-year, $10 million commitment will support global nonprofit organizations focused on empowering entrepreneurs, supporting underserved communities, ensuring animal health and welfare, and promoting recycling and the circular economy.

The company announced that the first recipient of SHEIN Cares funding is Vital Voices, a global non-governmental organization that invests in women leaders who are unafraid to tackle a problem – from gender-based violence to the climate crisis – but need support to turn their vision into action. Through a two-year, $500,000 partnership, SHEIN Cares will support scholarships and mentoring programs for many women leaders around the world.

“Women’s participation in every sector is more critical than ever and changemakers in Vital Voices’ network are charting a new course for women’s leadership. We are thrilled to partner with SHEIN as they invest in women with strong roots in community, bold ideas that bridge divides and a strong commitment to paying it forward,” said Alyse Nelson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vital Voices Global Partnership.

Last year, SHEIN Cares donated more than $1 million to global organizations, including in-kind and product donations. Additional projects supported by the SHEIN Cares Fund will be announced over the next year.

“Empowering individuals and giving back to those in need has been part of our company DNA since day one,” said Molly Miao, Chief Marketing Officer at SHEIN. “Organizations like Vital Voices are critical given the challenges of inequity globally, and the reinforcement of barriers to economic development. In addition to our partners at Vital Voices, we hope the SHEIN Cares Fund will further support many organizations around the world who are on the front lines of tackling tough challenges.”
