Great Clips has always worked to strengthen the people and communities we serve. And we’re proud to contribute our time, talents and resources to a variety of great causes. We’ve updated the community outreach part of Great Clips to reflect our new look as well as give the program some streamlined focus areas.
Great Deeds.™ is a challenge to ourselves—a call to action for all our salons, partners and friends, to keep remembering what makes us great—the people and the communities where we live and work. Through that loyalty and support, Great Clips is able to contribute millions of dollars to great causes every year. "It’s a big world, and one of the most important benefits of being a successful company is being fortunate enough to contribute on a bigger scale," said Great Clips CEO Rhoda Olsen.
The four main focus areas of our Great Deeds program are Community, Health, Support and Appreciation.
Community: Our salon owners are independent business people who live and work in communities across North America. Together with their team, customers and neighbors, salon owners help strengthen those communities. Whether it’s supporting a local hospital, cleaning a park, or hosting a cut-a-thon for cancer research, Great Clips makes a difference with acts of greatness, big and small.
Health: Support for organizations that have a great impact on people’s physical and mental wellness is another focus area for Great Clips. Many salons support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by selling the iconic Miracle Balloon in salons, and hosting events like cut-a-thons, silent auctions or bake sales. Great Clips is also a proud supporter of CUT IT OUT, a program of the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund.
Support: When you experience life’s most difficult challenges, it’s nice to know there are great people who care and want to help. Many Great Clips salons provide complimentary haircuts for people who donate to Wigs for Kids or to customers experiencing hair loss due to cancer treatments. Please note: Wigs for Kids is an optional program that some (not all) Great Clips salons offer to customers. If you would like to donate hair to Wigs for Kids, please call your local Great Clips salon first to find out if your salon participates in the program.
Appreciation: We believe it’s as important to celebrate great deeds as it is to do them. Through our online giving program, you can nominate a great charity doing great things in your community. Each month, Great Clips selects one 501c3 charity and rewards their dedication to greatness with a $1,500 donation.
