New York & Company has a long, proud history of philanthropy. We are passionate about giving back to the communities where we work and live. And, it turns out, New Yorkers are among the most compassionate and generous people you'll ever meet.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®
New York & Company is proud to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, internationally recognized for its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from 20% when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80% today. St. Jude is working to push that overall survival rate to 90 percent in the next decade. And families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food -- because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
New York & Company joined St. Jude as a partner in 2008, participating in the annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign. In our first year, we were named "New Corporate Partner of the Year" by St. Jude for outstanding fundraising. Since then, we have raised more than $12.6 million for this amazing cause. We are very grateful to our loyal customers who join us wholeheartedly in supporting the St. Jude mission of finding cures and saving children battling deadly diseases. As an organization and as a team, we look forward to supporting St. Jude each upcoming holiday season because we know "Some Gifts Count More Than Others."
Breast Cancer Research Foundation
It's important for us to support causes that affect the lives of women. Each October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we sell a product in our stores and donate proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Through our partnership with the BCRF, we are working toward prevention, and ultimately, a cure in our lifetime.
