Gifts That Give Back

Give someone you love a gift that gives back with this special item from the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation (MKACF). A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these items will benefit the MKACF and help enrich the lives of women across Canada. Remember, your support will assist women living with cancer and help support the fight to eliminate violence against women. 


Your donations go directly to supporting women living with cancer through the Look Good Feel Better program, and grants awarded to women’s shelters and outreach programs across the country dedicated to supporting women and children affected by domestic violence. From our donation page, you can make a one-time gift, an ongoing donation, receive a gift that gives back, make an honour or memorial gift and more.

More than 96% of your donation dollar goes directly to these programs. 
Less than 4% goes to administrative costs.

Donations may be sent to:
Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation
2020 Meadowvale Blvd.
Mississauga, ON L5N 6Y2

Cheques and money orders should be made out to the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation. You may designate the specific mission - supporting women living with cancer or ending violence against women - that you wish to support. The MKACF is required to honour the wishes of the donor. At the direction of the board, undesignated funds are used for both stated causes. 

Please note that donations of $10 or more made to the Foundation will receive a tax receipt.

Thank you for your support!
