BOSTON, April 24, 2014 — Fashion Project, the premier online clothing donation service, today announced a partnership with luxury stores Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman to provide a personalized charitable clothing donation service for customers who participate in the InCircle loyalty program. All members, regardless of their annual spending, can utilize the White Glove Clothing Donation service to donate gently used luxury clothing, shoes, and accessories to a charity of their choice.
The Fashion Project service and accompanying Wardrobe Consultation are just one of the many new benefits the retailers are offering InCircle members in celebration of their 30th anniversary. The retailers have a long-standing commitment to charitable giving and specifically supporting arts experiences for youth through their “The Heart of Neiman Marcus” program, which will be one of the 800,000+ charitable organizations customers can choose to donate to through Fashion Project.
“Partnering with Fashion Project to offer the White Glove donation service presents our InCircle customers with an unprecedented opportunity to give back,” said Maggie Lucas, Director of InCircle, Credit and Gift Card Marketing for Neiman Marcus Group Services. “With the help of Fashion Project, we are able to ensure our clothing is well cared for and working towards a worthy cause after it leaves our stores.”
The White Glove Clothing Donation service powered by Fashion Project offers pickup services for customers donating 10 items or more for locations within 30 miles of a Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman store. For every 10 items donated, InCircle members will earn $100 gift cards to Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman, up to $1,000. Once a donation is processed, the customer receives a tax receipt via email for the value of the donated items. Fashion Project donates the majority of net proceeds from each item to the charity of the donor’s choice. The list of participating charities can be found at https://www.fashionproject.com/donate/charities.
“We have been so excited by the response of retailers and the fashion industry to giving customers an easy way to donate clothing to charitable causes close to their heart,” says Anna Palmer, CEO of Fashion Project. “We hope this unprecedented level of service will make the donation of designer labels a personally rewarding and delightful experience.”
