An all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization, the District Sample Sale Foundation donates 100% of its profits to its chosen charity of the season along with a portion to its 12 legacy charities. Since its founding in 2006, the District Sample Sale has donated more than $315,000 to local women’s and children’s charities in the D.C. metropolitan region.

Spring 2015 Charity: DC Diaper Bank

DC Diaper Bank works to strengthen families by providing a reliable and adequate supply of free diapers to families in need living in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Diapers, which aren't covered by food stamps or WIC funds, are a necessity that many families in our area struggle to provide for their little ones. DC Diaper Bank believes that giving a little changes a lot, that something as basic as a fresh and clean bottom can reduce stress, increase health, and help babies and their families rise to the top. Each month, DC Diaper Bank provides an average of 75,000 diapers to more than 2,600 across the region. To date, DC Diaper Bank has donated over 1.3 million diapers to families in need, and this number continues to grow. Find out how you can become a part of this work at | 202.656.8503


Legacy District Sample Sale Charities

The District Sample Sale Legacy Fund was created to offer continued support to the past beneficiaries of The District Sample Sale. In addition to our chosen charity each season, a portion of our proceeds will benefit our past event beneficiaries. We feel strongly that the needs are endless and that building a network of continued support will truly make the difference in the lives of women and children in our region. See below for more information on how we choose our charities.

How We Choose Our Charities

Each season, the founders of the District Sample Sale choose one women's (fall) or children's (spring) charity toward which we focus our efforts and proceeds.

We look for:

  • regionally-based 501(c)3 charities where our donation can make a significant impact on a specific program
  • a charity that fits within the District Sample Sale Foundation mission statement
  • a charity that can work with us to help spread the word about our event and provide on-site marketing to promote their cause.
  • a charity where our marketing efforts and continued financial support will help them grow their organization in the long term.
    • If you are a 501(c)3 organization that would like to be considered, please email us with a description of your organization and a statement of how your group fits within our criteria and can benefit.
