At Express, we support the communities where we live
and work by providing volunteer engagement, financial
support and in-kind donations to various organizations
and agencies making a difference in the lives of others.

Express associates volunteer thousands of hours each year, and our job is to provide the flexibility so they can explore that passion. While our giving philosophy is focused on economic independence for those in our community, our associates volunteer for agencies that support everything from animal welfare to building urban gardens. We have extended our efforts globally through our partnership with the MGF Touch Foundation, which supports nonprofit organizations around the world that work to end human trafficking.

On a corporate level, our community engagement philosophy has three primary focuses:

  • Supporting women, men and families in their efforts to gain sustainable economic independence
  • Supporting arts and culture
  • Providing meaningful flexible ways for our associates to volunteer


Since we began our volunteer engagement program in the summer of 2014, our associates have donated valuable time and energy into giving back to their communities.
