At some point in life, we may all be faced with challenging situations and find ourselves in need of a helping hand. When you make a gift to Sephora Stands Together, you are helping your fellow colleagues by helping them to evacuate, rebuild, and recover from times of crisis. Your tax-deductible gift makes a direct and lasting impact on the lives of those impacted by financial hardship.
The Sephora Stands Together Fund provides short-term assistance to Sephora employees facing financial hardship caused by natural disaster, family emergencies, and other unexpected events. Through the Together Fund, we were able to help over 360 Sephora employees in three countries by providing +$250,000 in financial assistance during their time of need.
