Below, shop our top picks for the best charitable gifts for Mother’s Day.
The Great College Sweatshirt
The California label’s signature Boxy Crew Tee is embroidered with sunflowers in honor of Alliance of Moms co-founder Kelly McKee Zajfen’s beautiful son George who passed away unexpectedly last year. Handmade in Los Angeles, the limited-edition piece benefits Zajfen’s organization, which supports Alliance for Children’s Rights’ work with pregnant and parenting youth in the Los Angeles foster care system.
Naked Cashmere BCRF Collection Love Eye Mask
Give mom the gift of sleep. The cashmere company’s cozy Love Eye Mask is not only lined in silk, but it benefits the Breast Cancer Research Foundation; so you can sleep easy for more than one reason.
EF Collection x Evan’s Sunnies Ring
Admittedly, this EF Collection design is close to this particular writer’s heart as the Evan’s Sunnies Ring was created in honor of her late daughter, Evan, who passed away from a rare mitochondrial disorder right before Mother’s Day last year. Each rose-gold and ruby ring purchase will benefit Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine in San Diego, an organization that was instrumental in Evan’s care. The charitable gesture is courtesy of Angels 4 Austin, a non-profit inspired by EF Collection designer Emily Faith Strauss’s newborn son who passed away from Polycystic Kidney Disease.
Cleobella x Katherine Schwarzenegger Christina Midi Dress
The sustainable clothing company teamed up with Katherine Schwarzenegger on a Mommy & Me capsule collection that benefits Moms Demand Action’s efforts combating gun violence. The collaboration’s Christina Midi Dress features a feminine design that can be worn for years to come — even after your little one outgrows their matching look.
Warby Parker Noor Sunglasses
The eyewear label’s Noor sunglasses in breeze are as stylish as they are charitable. As with every Warby Parker purchase, each pair contributes to the company’s Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program, which ensures that a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need through VisionSpring and other non-profit partners, as well as through the Pupils Project; the latter of which was launched in 2015 and works with local government agencies to provide free vision screenings, eye exams and glasses to children in need.
Tea Collection Adult Comfy Fit PJ Set
The beloved San Francisco-based children’s brand now has a line of cozy adult pajamas available. Their Parrot Polka pajama set is our favorite style — and like all of their other clothing throughout the year—it benefits the Global Fund for Children, a nonprofit that advocates for children worldwide through local grassroots organizations.
Tory Burch Embrace Ambition Pave Bracelet
The New York designer’s Embrace Ambition Pave Bracelet features a Gemini link charm and crystals. One hundred percent of its net proceeds benefit The Tory Burch Foundation’s work in support of women entrepreneurs.
Sauipe Swim Lydia Buttoned Shirt Beach Cover-Up

Veronica Beard Original Printed-Canvas Slide Sandal
A portion of the proceeds from all Veronica Beard purchases now through the end of June benefit Maria Shriver’s non-profit, the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement at Cleveland Clinic. Our personal favorite item that benefits the organization’s advocacy for Alzheimer’s prevention and research is the label’s Original Printed-Canvas Slide Sandal in forest green, a stylish limited-edition collaboration with Dr. Scholl’s.
Sundree Skin The Dree-m Team
Founded by childhood friends Sahar Sanjar Dejban and Sahar Vazin Nezhad, Sundree Skin’s products benefit the Mental Health Coalition’s efforts year round. For each purchase — including Sundree Skin’s Dree-m Team bundle – three percent is donated to the mental health organization. Meanwhile, mom will be thrilled by this three-piece skincare kit, which includes an eye mask, facial serum, and their signature cooling facial globe.
Alice + Olivia Katz Sunburst Pleated Maxi Skirt
Hollywood favorite Alice + Olivia released a stylish Mommy + Me capsule collection filled with maxi skirts, reversible robes, cropped jeans and more. Our top pick is their Katz Sunburst pleated maxi skirt in the high tea floral print, which will benefit Every Mother Counts with 10 percent of all May 14 sales going to Christy Turlington’s maternal health non-profit.
Pixie Lane The Women’s High Shine Long Leggings
Pixie Lane created a special legging in honor of Bisous for Léo, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for INAD, a rare pediatric disease that’s been likened to Parkinson’s mixed with Alzheimer’s. The brand’s high-shine long legging is perfect for yoga or good old-fashioned lounging. Added bonuses: Pixie Lane makes a matching pair for kids and both styles benefit Bisous for Léo.
Things Are Looking Up Optimism Deck Bundle
Everyone’s favorite optimism deck just went digital. Gift someone peace of mind with Dr. Deepika Chopra’s science-based digital card deck, which features prompts intended to boost happiness. For each digital challenge purchased in the month of May, the company will gift the Digital 33-Day Challenge to a healthcare worker of the purchaser’s choice.
Ava Grace Candle Duo
Created in honor of 16-year-old Ava Grace, who passed away from brain cancer in 2020, one hundred percent of The Duo’s proceeds benefit Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ neuro-oncology program. The hand-poured candles include two monochromatic designs: the 2003 candle and Ten One candle.
Goop Mother’s Day Diaper Donation
For the mother who has everything, give to someone else. Goop is offering shoppers the ability to donate a month’s supply of diapers to those in need through the non-profit Baby2Baby.
Alliance of Moms
Mandy Moore and Zooey Deschanel appear in this year’s Alliance of Moms shirt campaign, which benefits the organization’s ability to provide services, education, resources, and advocacy for young families in foster care.
Max Mara Mohair, Wool and Silk Canvas Blazer
Max Mara teamed up with Your Mom Cares for a shopping event that benefits the kids mental health non-profit, which was founded by Sharon Chalkin Feldstein (Beanie Feldstein’s mom), Terria Joseph (Alicia Keys’s mom), and Patsy Noah (Adam Levine’s mom).
