The Mary Kay Foundation℠

The Golden Rule is the very foundation on which Mary Kay Ash built her great Company. She dreamed of enriching women’s lives – but she knew that cancer and domestic violence affect women on the deepest of levels, regardless of geography, age or economic circumstances. With that in mind, she founded The Mary Kay Foundation℠ in 1996. Since its inception, the Foundation has granted more than $60 million to support organizations committed to ending domestic violence and cancers affecting women.


Mary Kay’s Lobbying for Good program began in the 1980s when the Company lobbied for insurance coverage for mammograms. Since that time, Mary Kay employees and independent sales force members have met with legislators throughout the United States. Mary Kay independent sales force members, with iconic pink Cadillacs in tow, advocate for laws that support funding for the Violence Against Women Act, funding for domestic violence support services and funding for teen dating violence awareness and prevention programs.
