“We’re proud to celebrate 35 years of Gap Inc. employees fulfilling the promise made by Doris and Don Fisher to ‘do more than sell clothes,’” said Bobbi Silten, President of Gap Foundation. “It’s an exciting milestone for everyone involved with the company.”
Doris and Don Fisher started the Gap Foundation in 1977 to support the communities where Gap Inc. does business. The company supports nonprofit organizations with a focus on helping underserved youth in developed countries explore careers and build job skills, and women in developing countries build critical life and work skills.
To honor the milestone, California Governor Jerry Brown declared September 13 Gap Foundation Day. “Gap Foundation has created opportunities for young people and women across the globe,” Brown said in his proclamation. “I offer my congratulations to Gap Inc. and its employees for making a difference in our communities around the world and their commitment to ‘Be what’s possible.’”
Gap Inc. has achieved many milestones in social responsibility, including:
Gap Inc. Co-Founder Doris Fisher and Gap Inc. Chairman and CEO Glenn Murphy will be among those in attendance at the afternoon’s event. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee will also attend the celebration.
Gap Inc. is a leading global specialty retailer offering clothing, accessories and personal care products for men, women, children and babies under the Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime and Athleta brands.
