About Us

Mary Kay Ash believed in the power of women — especially when they work together to help others. Today, The Mary Kay FoundationSM carries on this legacy with Team Up for Women!® From April 1 to May 12, Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants are reaching out to women everywhere in the annual Team Up for Women!® fundraiser. Please join us in the fight against cancers that affect women and ending domestic violence by supporting The Mary Kay FoundationSM with your donation. Together, we can make a difference.
