UPDATE (June 12, 2020): Late last month, Glossier announced that it would be allocating $500,000 USD across organizations dedicated to combatting racial injustice. On top of its donation, the Emily Weiss-helmed company unveiled a $500,000 USD grant initiative for Black-owned beauty businesses, which is now open for applications.

According to the label, Black beauty entrepreneurs based in the U.S. can apply for grants of $10,000 USD, $30,000 USD and $50,000 USD, “depending on the stage of their business.” It will also offer “grant recipients advisory support from relevant team members at Glossier,” as well as use its channels to introduce the founders and share their stories to its community.

Applications are now open through July 3. Head on over to Glossier’s website for more details.


ORIGINAL STORY (May 31, 2020): To show its solidarity with the “fight against systemic racism, white supremacy and the historic oppression of the Black community” in the U.S., Glossier took to Instagram to announce that it will be allocating $500,000 USD across organizations dedicated to combatting racial injustice. Establishments include Black Lives Matter, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Equal Justice Initiative, Marsha P. Johnson Institute and We The Protestors.

In addition to its initiative, the beauty brand will also be donating an additional $500,000 USD in the form of grants to Black-owned beauty businesses this June. The label ended its statement saying: “We’re inspired by so many people in our community who are using their voices and making change. We see you and are with you. For those looking for ways to take action, you can find resources for engagement and education in our Stories.”

Read the label’s full statement down below. In the wake of the ongoing situation happening in the U.S., here’s how you can stay informed, vocal and safe.
