5% of proceeds go to charity
We believe in making good things and doing good things! For that reason, Friday Pattern Company donates 5% of all proceeds to a rotating collection of the top-ranked charities in the world. See the list below for information on each organization and which Friday pattern supports their cause.
Against Malaria Foundation
The Against Malaria Foundation distribute long-lasting insecticidal nets to populations at high risk for malaria, an infectious disease that kills half a million people every year (and sickens 400 million more). Each net costs approximately $5, lasts for three to four years, and protects two people on average. GiveWell, a nonprofit that evaluates charitable giving, has estimated that for every $3,000 spent on these nets, one life is saved. What’s more, every $1m spent fighting malaria efficiently improves the GDP of Africa by $12m. In short, AMF offers one of the single most powerful, cost-effective ways of reducing human death and suffering.

The American Association of University Women
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a non-profit organization that advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. The AAUW has been around since 1881. In fact, one of its first major projects was conducting research to disprove the myth that a college education would result in infertility(!).
Today, the AAUW pursues a wide range of initiatives, from combatting sexual harassment in the workplace to funding educational opportunities for girls and women in STEM fields. AAUW has consistently received the highest possible rating from Charity Navigator.

What's more, over 90% of every dollar raised goes directly to families in need.
