Fort Wayne, Indiana “We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibers, our actions run as causes and return to us as results.” - Herman Melville

At Vera Bradley we understand that everything you undertake that matters IS personal. That’s why we integrate our philanthropy directly into our corporate operations. Our commitment to funding breast cancer research is part of our day-to-day and it connects us to a common mission that transcends products and profit. On this journey, everyone we touch through this work becomes a supporter and a member of this circle of friends who believe, as we do, that a cure is in sight.

We count you, our supporters, among our many blessings as we close another successful fiscal year. Together, we contributed more than $2.7 million to critical research impacting women worldwide. Our continued fundraising success has everything to do with the invisible threads that weave us all together in our dream of a future free from breast cancer. We’re honored that you choose to support the Vera Bradley Foundation. Thank you.

With gratitude,

Catherine Hill
Executive Director
