Making a Donation:
Dress for Success Indianapolis is a non-profit organization that provides women clothes, confidence and career development support.
There’s Power in Your Suit:
They are looking for stylish, classy, professional suits and blouses (donated on hangers) that will empower a woman to stand tall and walk into her interview looking and feeling confident. If you are wondering whether an item is appropriate to donate, ask yourself whether you or a professional woman you know would feel confident wearing the item – as is – to an interview.
There’s Passion in Your Dollars:
Giving a financial contribution to Dress for Success Indianapolis reflects your passion for empowering women in our community to succeed. This year, Dress for Success Indianapolis will spend over $25,000 supplementing inventory when donated items don’t meet the needs of their clients. You can ensure every woman receives a complete outfit, by giving $5 for hosiery, $10 for a pair of shoes, $15 for a purse or $50 for a suit! All donations are tax-deductible!
