Bella Boutique provides free formal wear, shoes, jewelry, and accessories to high school students in financial need to enhance self-image and break down societal barriers to formative experiences. For many struggling Colorado families, the cost of sending a teen to prom is a luxury beyond reach. We believe finding the perfect gown should be a rite of passage, not a privilege. Since 2014, Bella Boutique has dressed more than 1,500 teens with over $217,000 worth of free formal gear.
Are you wondering how you can help support Bella?
As a non-profit, we rely heavily on fundraising events, monetary donations, and grant submissions during the prom season. Due to COVID, we were unable to hold any 2020 fundraising events and our normal contributors are focusing on medical-related donations, understandably. Our goal is to raise money over the next 4 months to ensure we are fully prepared to open the Boutique to students, once it is deemed safe to do so.
There are three opportunities you can support at any time of the year!
Each option is detailed below:
1. Monetary Donations
2. King Soopers/Kroger Community Rewards
3. Amazon Smile
Monetary Donations - From our website, you can donate directly to Bella Boutique to help support our mission. Any amount of donation is helpful! Your donations go towards supporting our boutique, including purchasing additional inventory that we do not get through in-kind donations (i.e., plus sized gowns up to size 30 and small sized formal shoes). Donations made through the website are tax deductible. A receipt will be sent to you shortly after you donate. Click to donate to Bella Boutique: https://bella-boutique-10.square.site/
King Soopers/Kroger Community Rewards – Register your rewards card (or alternative ID) at King Soopers or Kroger and select Bella Boutique Denver as your Community Rewards organization. Once this is completed, all you have to do is scan your reward card each time you shop! The Community Rewards Program donations average $80 per household each year! This is the easiest way to support Bella Boutique year round.
Amazon Smile – Log in to your amazon account at https://smile.amazon.com/ and select Bella Boutique as your charity. Amazon donates to Bella Boutique for every purchase made from Amazon Smile. Amazon Smile can also be activated on the App. This is the second easiest way to support Bella Boutique and it is the perfect time to sign up for Amazon Smile as the shopping season nears.
As the president of Bella Boutique, and on behalf of the Bella Board, I want to thank you for your support! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would like more information about Bella Boutique.
