Saks Fifth Avenue Foundation

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

Support the Saks Fifth Avenue Foundation

This year is the fifth anniversary of the Saks Fifth Avenue Foundation’s commitment to make mental health a priority in every community. We hope you will join us this October as we celebrate our continued commitment to mental health with a fundraiser and cocktail reception at L’Avenue at Saks in New York City. Our fundraising will allow us to continue our partnerships with national nonprofits and expand to support the grassroots organizations providing resources and support to communities that need our help the most, such as the AAPI, LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities. We hope you will join us by making a charitable donation in support of our mental health mission.
