where your money goes from our

you shop we donate


since 2014, kate spade new york has been supporting community impact projects in masoro, rwanda, where our on purpose supplier is based. in 2018 we launched the on purpose fund to also support nonprofit organizations that empower the women and girls in our on purpose supply chain community to be the heroines of their own story. together, we’re empowering the women who make kate spade new york handbags at abahizi rwanda, a local employee-owned handbag manufacturer that provides competitive wages, health benefits and access to life education (learn more here), as well as the communities which they call home.

in each you shop we donate event, we take a percentage of net sales and donate them to support women’s and girls’ empowerment in masoro, rwanda communities where our on purpose supplier is based.
