That’s why we are proud of our commitment to enhance the education and well-being of women and their families in our communities through the Ulta Beauty Charitable Foundation (UBCF), our long-standing partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, and our support of local nonprofit organizations. To have the greatest impact on our communities and guests, we know it is equally important to care for our passionate and generous team of associates through UBCF’s Associate Relief Program, which provides financial grants to those facing financial hardship. Whether it’s providing opportunities for women and families or helping our associates rebuild and recover, we are committed to making a difference where we live and work.
While advances have been made in research to support women’s health, the work the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) is doing is critical to advance the world’s most-promising research to find an end to breast cancer. Thanks to the generosity of our associates, business partners and guests, we are proud of the more than $33 million we have raised for BCRF since our partnership began in 2009. This year we are funding 25 research projects aimed at eradicating, preventing or treating breast cancer. To maximize the impact we can have on this partnership, our associates help us fundraise and raise awareness by lending their time and expertise to our A Gorgeous Way to Give in-store program, Cut for a Cause salon event and Annual Golf Outing and Day of Beauty.
