Saks Fifth Avenue Foundation

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

Join Us in Supporting Mental Health Programs for Communities in Need

Americans are facing a global pandemic, traumatic effects of racism, and economic turmoil. Each one of these issues will have lasting effects on mental health, but together the severity is unparalleled.

With your help, we are continuing to support organizations that are directly delivering mental health services - training counselors, schools, volunteers and mentors - on supporting the emotional wellbeing of their communities. Additionally, we plan to focus future funding on organizations that reach BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities that need our help the most.

Thank you for standing with us to support those who need our help.
