Sara feels grateful to be a woman in America who was given the opportunity to achieve her dream. She wants women everywhere to have the same opportunity. For all the women who feel as grateful, and for all the men who see the global potential of women, The Sara Blakely Foundation is dedicated to helping women globally and locally through education and entrepreneurship. By finding the future female entrepreneurs and leaders of the world and giving them the “leg-up” they need to succeed, the whole world will benefit.
I pledge to invest in women because I believe it offers one of the greatest returns on investment. I am
committed to the belief that we would all be in a much better place if half the human race (women) were empowered
to prosper, invent, be educated, start their own businesses, run for office — essentially be given the chance to soar!
Using her resourceful entrepreneurial approach, Sara is devoted to running her foundation as effectively and efficiently as possible, making the absolute best use of donations and her own money to strategically help women. She has pledged a portion of all SPANX, STAR Power by SPANX, ASSETS Red Hot Label and ASSETS sales directly to The Sara Blakely Foundation.
Sara signed the Giving Pledge, committing to give half her wealth to charities that focus on empowering women. This long-term, global initiative created by Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates aims to inspire deeper engagement in philanthropy and increase charitable giving globally.
