Standing together.

In honor of Giving Tuesday, Rothy’s is making a $20,000 donation that will be distributed across four organizations which we’ve partnered with over the course of 2020. Each one is committed to enacting meaningful change across a variety of causes—and we’re so proud to stand with them. Join us in saying thank you to those who work hard to create a better, brighter future.

Every bit counts.

We believe that the small, thoughtful actions of a group of people can make a big impact—and our Rothy’s community is doing exactly that. Here’s a look at some of the amazing goals we’ve helped our partners reach this year. 

Direct Relief. 

Our in-kind donations and spring fundraising campaign for Direct Relief have supported the distribution of 10,000 isolation gowns, 250,000 surgical masks or 25,000 face shields to healthcare workers throughout the US. 

“Direct Relief is so deeply grateful for the extraordinary acts of generosity by the Rothy’s Community to help keep health workers safe as they put themselves at risk to keep all of us safe. This support translates into immediate, practical help, and is such a wonderful example of everyone pulling together and doing whatever we can to protect those who are most vulnerable.”
– Thomas Tighe, Direct Relief President & CEO

Surfrider Foundation

Through a national network of experts and volunteers, our donation will help the Surfrider Foundation to protect and preserve 5 miles of coastline. 

"This year, we have been more thankful than ever for the value that our ocean, waves and beaches provide as a safe recreation space, and Surfrider will continue to fight to ensure this is true for all people. Join the movement by finding your local Surfrider chapter, becoming a member, and staying informed by following @surfrider.”

NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund 

Our donations this year will help the Legal Defense and Educational Fund fight voter suppression, employment and housing discrimination, racial bias in the criminal justice system, and discriminatory policies and practices in America’s public schools. 

“Thank you for joining LDF’s fight for racial justice and equality! We appreciate your recognition of the importance of our work. With help from friends like you, LDF will continue to protect and expand America’s democracy.” 
– Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation

In 2020, Rothy's contributions to BCRF will help fund 300 hours of breast cancer research by the best and brightest minds in science around the world. 

“BCRF and the researchers we fund are dedicated to ending breast cancer. Thanks to them, we have new treatments, higher survival rates, and new breakthroughs on the horizon. Send a note to BCRF's cohort of 275 researchers to thank them for the work they do every day. Together, let’s create a world free from breast cancer!”


We’re so proud of these partnerships, and it wouldn’t be possible without you. Here’s to doing better together.
