Here at TULIP BRAND, we are inspired by how small businesses enhance communities in a way that global corporations cannot. Therefore, we believe in "completing the circle" by returning as much of our profits back to your towns and cities as we can.
TULIP BRAND is still a young movement, and we aren't at the scale where we can make a meaningful impact -- yet. For right now, we are setting aside the donation dollars for each town and donating when they've grown to an amount that'll make a difference.
The more TULIP BRAND apparel sold, the greater the impact we can make in local communities.
As for the charitable investments themselves, here is how they'll be spent:
- 80% of the donation dollars go right back into the market they came from. If you bought a tee with a Pittsburgh brand on it, then small businesses in Pittsburgh benefit from these dollars.
- 20% of the donation dollars go into a pool to fund the small business movement at the national level (throwing our weight behind small business-friendly legislation, redirecting funds to areas not yet reached by TULIP BRAND, etc.)
We are still a young company, and we have some really exciting things to announce in the months ahead. Check back often, and make sure to sign up for our newsletter so we can keep you informed.
All my best,
Founder and CEO of TULIP BRAND
