Additionally, as a global brand and to comply with our core company values, we do not offer donations to the following types of organizations/entities:

- Organizations that discriminate by race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, or national origin, disability, or veteran status
- Religious organizations, churches, and programs that are purely denominational in purpose
- Research projects
We follow IRS tax guidelines for all of our product and financial donations, and organizations approved to receive a donation must be a registered 501(c) (3) nonprofit/charitable organization. Additionally, a current copy of the organization's Tax Exempt Certificate is required.

The Trevor Project - Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people.
Trevor uses its funding in many different ways:
- Providing crisis services free of charge and 24/7 — including TrevorLifeline, TrevorText, and TrevorChat
- Supporting the world’s largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth, TrevorSpace.org
- Training a record number of volunteers
- Supporting their work in advocating for legislation that protect the rights of young LGBTQ people
We are committed to donating a minimum of $10,000 over our year-long partnership with Trevor. Currently, you can lend your support by purchasing either size of the Power Pink Player’s Choice Sleeves - we are donating $1 of each pack sold directly to The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
We encourage our fans to visit The Trevor Project and lend additional support when possible. Their programs are vital to the LGBTQ community.

National Center for Transgender Equality - The National Center for Transgender Equality advocates to change policies and society to increase understanding and acceptance of transgender people. In the nation’s capital and throughout the country, NCTE works to replace disrespect, discrimination, and violence with empathy, opportunity, and justice.
NCTE envisions a society in which transgender people not only survive, but thrive, with accepting families and communities, full self-determination over their identities and bodies, and freedom from disrespect, discrimination and violence. For this vision to become a reality, we must also create equity, equal opportunity, safety, health, and economic well-being for all people over their entire lifetimes.
