Bath & Body Works Foundation

BBW Foundation

For a Brighter and Better Community

At Bath & Body Works, our purpose goes beyond selling products. It's also about making a meaningful difference. For more than 30 years we've been committed to doing what's right for our associates and our communities.

We believe the world is a better place when everyone has access to the things that make them feel safe, healthy and secure – because when basic needs are met, living a happy, fulfilling life becomes that much easier.

How We're Doing Our Part

We’re committed to improving the lives of people in underserved and underrepresented communities by providing resources, volunteer time and product donations to organizations that help provide safe spaces, basic needs and paths to self-sufficiency.

Historical Giving

2021 – A Year of Doing Good, Together.

It’s imperative that in these times of uncertainty, we come together to support those who need it most … when every minute of volunteer time and every dollar of support matter more than ever. We’re proud that in 2021 we were able to continue our legacy of giving our time, money and collective efforts to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.

In 2021, we invested more than $22 million into nonprofits:

  • More than $17 million to nonprofit organizations in our home office communities. Since 1993, the company foundation has contributed more than $277 million to support nonprofit organizations in our home office communities.
  • $2.5 million donated to key partners that work to eliminate racism, empower women, advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community and fight hunger.
  • $1.5 million to supporting cancer research through our partnership with Pelotonia. This year, more than 900 associates and their guests participated in Pelotonia. Since 2010, Bath & Body Works has raised more than $65 million for Pelotonia.
  • $350,000 and over 13,000 hygiene products to support long-term recovery and direct services to those impacted by natural disasters.
  • 159 service projects through associate volunteerism that focus on providing safe spaces, basic needs, paths to self-sufficiency and much more.
  • More than $1.9 million in products and merchandise to support our communities, including first responders, healthcare institutions, community action agencies and the nonprofit community.

We hold a deep commitment to each other and to our communities and continuously strive to make a difference.
