Giving Back at the Sale

We love when the whole community can participate in the Vera Bradley Annual Outlet Sale. We are once again partnering with some great local organizations. We would love for you to join us!


Every Day:

Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer

Our co-founders, Barbara Bradley Baekgaard and Patricia R. Miller, began raising funds for breast cancer research in 1993 after the loss of their dear friend, Mary Sloan. Since then, their genuine commitment to this cause has evolved into the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. To date, the Foundation has raised and donated over $32.5 million dollars!

Currently, the Foundation funds research at the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Eighty-six cents of every dollar donated to the Foundation goes to breast cancer research.

Look for lots of opportunities to support the Foundation at the Sale — you'll be able to round up or make a donation at checkout, buy a raffle ticket to win our Foundation quilt, and purchase Foundation apparel. You can also support the Foundation by adding the VIP Experience to your ticket. All proceeds from the $50 VIP Experience benefit the Foundation. Learn more about the VIP Experience
