Giving Back

It is so much more than just clothes…

As a community, Matilda Jane works with a purpose: to bring happiness into the lives of the customers we adore and to Spread the Love to others as far as we can reach. From the very beginning, we wanted this company to make dreams come true and to make the world a little better place, any way we could.

Founder Might Acorn Foundation

The idea for the foundation was sparked by visits that Denise, David, and a team of friends and family made during November 2012 and February 2013 to Kenya. Since that time, the foundations primary focus has been centered on impacting the Kipsongo Slums of Kitale, Kenya. The Kipsongo Slums are home to several thousand children who live hopelessly day after day, searching for food, searching for love.


Supporting Denise’s Mission

Denise believed that one act of kindness, passion, and the courage to achieve your dreams could change the world. That is what started the Mighty Acorn Foundation.

Matilda Jane, Trunk Keepers and many customers are active in this foundation through sponsoring children and their generous donations.

MJC Honors Program

For the first time ever, on behalf of our Trunk Keepers, Matilda Jane is sponsoring five children in need. Learn about others who need sponsorship on the Mighty Acorn Foundation site. You can also donate right here on the Matilda Jane site. You can easily add donation to your order.


The Mighty Acorn Foundation in Action

One of the goals of the Mighty Acorn Foundation is to bridge that gap and to allow giving hearts to help make a dramatic impact from across the world. Through this foundation, the hope is to save children, one at a time, from the dead-end life they endure when they are forced to live in the slums. While general monetary donations are always accepted and appreciated, the Mighty Acorn Foundation’s ultimate goal is to connect one child in the slum to one open-hearted family here in the USA.

Janes Give Back

The Matilda Jane program Janes Give Back was created to support a multitude of organizations and focus on local communities. To date, MJ has raised more than $180,000 for nearly 850 organizations. We couldn’t do any of this without the support of our incredible team of Trunk Keepers, as well as the terrific customers who believe in what our company stands for.
