Holt Renfrew has a strong commitment to charitable initiatives. In 2013 we launched H Project, an in-store shop that supports different cultures, crafts and artisans from around the world. Filled with extraordinary products with extraordinary stories, the shop features socially responsible, sustainable and artisanal merchandise that fits within the Holt Renfrew fashion luxury ethos. H Project also brings exclusive designer collaborations to Holt Renfrew, creating unique merchandise opportunities to support global charitable partnerships. Past shops and collaborations include Uncrate India curated by Waris Ahluwalia, FEED totes designed by Tory Burch and Paul Smith mittens to benefit Movember.
Closer to home, Holt Renfrew supports local and national charities in the communities where our customers live and work. From private shopping events that benefit charitable groups to funding for programs involving the arts, there are many ways to partner with Holt Renfrew. We primarily focus our giving in the areas of arts and culture
Charitable Shopping Nights
Our Charitable Shopping Nights give registered charities the opportunity to use Holt Renfrew’s spaces, including the new Holt Renfrew Men store, to bring in their membership base and engage in a luxury private shopping event. To continue our program of giving back, Holt Renfrew will donate 10% of all sales made during that event to your group’s charity, or charity of choice.
