Local

 

Each year we donate to local organizations that address the needs of women and girls in our community.  The organizations are chosen based on our yearly focus and if they align with our mission and vision.   For more information on the organizations we gave to this year please visit our Blog.

Endowment

 

In 2012, Blossom established an endowment with the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation.  While financial gifts to an endowed scholarship fund remain untouched, the income earned from the principal balance finances scholarships for local women and girls. This allows Blossom to impact future generations of women.

Global

Each year we donate to international organizations that make a direct impact on the lives of women and girls.  Each year organizations are chosen based on our focus and if they align with our mission and vision.  For more information on the organizations we have given to, please visit our Blog.
