Who They Are
Coach is a New York global fashion house that creates beautiful handbags and accessories that are crafted to last. What began as a dream to hand-craft leather into beautiful, clever, and practical things quickly became a fashion house that is known around the world for its distinct attitude and lifestyle collections, all inspired by Coach’s hometown of New York.
Throughout the years, Coach has become so much more than a bag—it’s a global community of people that are united by a shared spirit of optimism and the courage to be themselves. It’s this “family” that inspires Coach to reimagine fashion for the future they want to see tomorrow.
What They Believe
Coach believes in crafting beautiful things that you can be yourself in as well as things that have a positive impact on our world. The same way that Coach cares about every stitch that goes into their products, they care about the impact they have on people, communities, and the planet. Everything they make is crafted to last with the belief that better-made things create a better made future for all.
In 2008, the Coach Foundation was created to support global philanthropic initiatives focused on community to help create a better future for all. Since its founding, the Coach Foundation has given more than $60 million to nonprofit partners all over the world. Through the Coach Foundation, Dream It Real was launched. Dream It Real is a program aimed at driving social equity through educational opportunities for young people from underrepresented backgrounds and low-income communities.
Through Dream It Real, the Coach Foundation is committed to providing 5,000 scholarships by 2025 by partnering with nonprofits around the world that are working to address inequities in higher education that are faced by under-represented students. Dream It Real supports nonprofit organizations like The Opportunity Network, Bottom Line, Year Up, and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
