Our Commitment to Give Back

Here at Scrubs.com, we live and breathe our mission to help healthcare workers and support them wherever they are. We also recognize the importance of social responsibility and making a difference wherever we can.

Giving Back to Our Community

In considering how we'd go about giving back via charitable donations or other philanthropic means, it was also vital that we gave you, Scrubs.com customers, a say in how we donate. We didn't want to be just another store that says they give to charity or non-profit organizations but doesn’t tell you anything else.

Read our story to find out more information on how we support our communities and are dedicated to making charitable initiatives. 

How We Do It

We donate at least 1% of every purchase to charity, and you have two options – or over 1.5 million options, depending on how you look at it!

  • Option 1 – Donate to this month’s featured charity or non-profit. Each month, we’ll highlight one of a handful of charities that we regularly partner with, and they’ll be the “default” option for our – or your – donation.
  • Option 2 – Choose a charity or non-profit of your choice. When you see your “Order summary” in your shopping cart, you'll see how much we will donate on your behalf. If you hit "Update," this will open the ShoppingGives search tool. You can search over 1.5 million charities and non-profits, from nationally and globally recognized organizations to local causes, and choose where you want the money to go.

All you need to do is complete your purchase. Then, we'll dispatch your order and send your donation to either our highlighted charity or the one of your choice.

About Our Highlighted Charities

Here's a quick overview of the featured charities and non-profits currently in our rotation. Remember that when you make a purchase from Scrubs.com, you don't need to wait for a charity to be featured for your donation to get to them. Simply hit the “Update” button in your shopping cart and choose where you want the cash to go.

Alzheimer’s Association

The Alzheimer’s Association is an influential and instrumental body in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease and all other forms of dementia. This charity plays a pivotal role in accelerating global research into this terrible condition, plays a part in driving risk reduction and early detection of Alzheimer’s, and promotes quality care and support for Alzheimer’s patients and their families.

Breast Cancer Research Foundation

In the last couple of years, breast cancer has overtaken lung cancer as the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide. While breast cancer isn’t the biggest killer when it comes to cancers, incidence rates are rising again, and it is affecting many millions of people worldwide. In the United States alone, nearly four million women are either living with breast cancer or have previously been treated and are in remission.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation aims to end breast cancer by conducting transformational research into this disease while raising the exposure of diagnosis and care inequalities both here and worldwide.

Environmental Defense Fund

The Environmental Defense Fund was founded in 1967. In a matter of years, its founders were instrumental in getting the pesticide DDT banned in the United States. The years that followed saw the osprey population recover across the country; the ban had such an impact it even led to the bald eagle and peregrine falcon coming off the endangered species list!

Today, the Environmental Defense Fund plays a leading role in designing market-based solutions for governments, industries and businesses who want to achieve growth and economic objectives while safeguarding and helping the environment thrive.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a charity inspired by Christian values with a simple vision: to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Built on five principles, Habitat for Humanity partners with people to help them build or improve their homes while having an affordable mortgage to allow them to pay for it.

While Habitat for Humanity is built on Christian values - "Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ" is its leading principle - the charity helps people of all religious faiths and backgrounds.
