Saks Fifth Avenue Foundation

The need for increased access to mental health services has never been more important.

Support the Saks Fifth Avenue Foundation

Recent data from CDC and The Surgeon General highlights record levels of loneliness, isolation and poor mental health. To help meet the increasing needs communities face, we are asking key partners to support the Saks Fifth Avenue Foundation’s investment in mental health programs. Our fundraising will allow us to continue our partnerships with national nonprofits and grassroots organizations, providing resources and support to communities that need our help the most, such as adolescent girls, the LGBTQ+ community and communities of color. We hope you will join us by making a charitable donation in support of our mental health mission.
