Get to Know Our Partners

For us, grassroots good means forming deep partnerships with organizations that understand the challenges in their neighborhoods and supporting them with resources to bring solutions to life. Get to know three of the Impact Partners we worked with this year.

"The Dinner Party represents a space where I can let down my guard, and I feel like breaking bread or having dinner with a person or group is one of the most important things you can do. Good friendships were made over dinner and a good glass of wine."

Maya - She/Her

The Dinner Party Community Member

“The program provides comprehensive queer youth therapy, but we also have a cohort of therapists that we train on queer youth therapy and in return, they go and provide those services.”

Jessica - She/Her

LMFT, Brave Trails Co-Founder & Co-Executive Director

“Homeboy Industries represents a haven for me, a new way of life, new beginnings, and a fresh start. Just becoming the man I always wanted to be that I didn't know how to be.”

Miguel - He/Him

Director of Community Relations

Mental Health Resources

See the variety of resources our Impact Partners provide.

Home of the nations first Suicide Prevention Center which provides 24/7 multilingual crisis support for anyone in distress or worried about a loved one.


The largest youth-run nonprofit, which developed the world's first-ever youth-for-youth mental health guidebook.

The organization's AFFIRM Program for LGBTQ+ youth offers group-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy interventions for improving the behavorial health and well-being of LGBTQ+ people.

A UK-based nonprofit that provides free, confidential support for young people under 25 via online, social, and mobile platforms.

Mental Health

Awareness Month

We encouraged our staff to complete the Be There Certificate training created by Jack.org in partnership with the Born This Way Foundation to empower each of us to support someone struggling with mental health. We also spent a few days at Camp Brave Trails, helping build bunk beds and prepare the camp.

$10,000 Grants. 10 Organisations.

Word Mental Health Day

On October 10th, in celebration of World Mental Health Day, we launched our TOMS 10X10 program, where we gave $10,000 USD grants to 10 mental health-focused organizations around the world.

TOMS & Ukraine

This year we gave $100,000 USD to our longtime partner, International Medical Corps, to support their work in providing access to critical mental health services in and around Ukraine. We also donated $10,000 USD to Bright Kids, which helps Ukrainian families with children with disabilities.

2022 Highlights

Special Collaborations

We love it when our impact efforts come to life through unique collaborations and collections.

Happiness Project

We collaborated with Happiness Project on a collection of footwear and apparel that supported and encouraged care for mental health. It also highlighted our Impact Partners Letters to Strangers and The Mix.

Unity Collection

A special collection with multiple drops throughout the year, not just for PRIDE month. We support the LGBTQ+ community year-round, partnering with organizations like COLORS, which provides free and unlimited LGBTQ+ affirmative mental health care to young people and their families.

PRINTGONZALEZ

We honored Día de Los Muertos with a limited-edition collaboration featuring Xicanx printmaker Daniel González. With every TOMS purchase, you help to support organizations like Self Help Graphics & Art, which provides access to space, training, and capital for Chicano/a and Xicanx artists.

Sustainability is a Journey, Not a Destination

We've always been in business to improve lives, which means taking good care of the place we call home.

Our Commitments

To make smart, long-term improvements to our products and practices, we’ve identified key commitments which will carry us through 2025. Take a look at four of them.


30% of footwear products sold in 2022 met our earthwise™ requirements.


We have been delayed on measuring our carbon footprint due to the supply chain pressure as a result of the pandemic. We're educating ourselves on carbon measurement and finding ways to reduce our footprint.

We aim to source 100% sustainable cotton by 2025. In 2022, we made significant progress towards this by introducing recycled cotton in our most popular shoe - the iconic Alpargata.

We've gone plastic-free in our packaging‐except for some hang tag fastener loops. All our earthwise™ products are 100% plastic-free, and we've switched our samples to use 100% recycled LDPE polybags.

Make with the Planet in mind

earthwise™ is a badge for products designed with the planet in mind, incorporating earth-friendly elements.

Ground-Up Change Starts With Us

In 2020, we made a long-term commitment to ensure our company and culture are rooted in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism.

Anti-Racist Organization

Our Culture & Experience Committee and DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism) Committee work to ensure we actively combat systemic racism and policies that lead to inequities.

A day to share, learn and understand systematic racism as we become better allies. Every year, we host a Day of Learning, where we work on building an inclusive, racially equitable culture in our company.

A proactive, data-informed and ongoing system for staff to work directly with our People Team to ensure job descriptions, titles, and compensation reflects the impact each staff member makes.

Not everyone benefits equally from salary negotiations, so we removed them altogether. We publish pay ranges in our open position postings, so all budgeted salary ranges are transparent.

Our program includes everyone‐regardless of level. We monitor representation for both mentees and mentors and encourage all of our staff to share, learn, and grow together.

We are a proud part of the rich and diverse Los Angeles community, and our goal is to be the best representation of the diversity of our hometown. This means creating structures and policies that address equity through the employee lifecycle—from applying, hiring, and onboarding processes to advancement, learning opportunities, and other internal development programs.

Data gathered: October 2022.

Creating Positive

Change Together

We love spending time with our Impact Partners and seeing where we can provide support to their communities.

This year, our employees built mental health first aid kits for partners, helped Brave Trails prep for summer camp, and participated in Homeboy Industries’ 5K race.

Giving Tuesday

Once a year, we close our global offices and dedicate an entire workday to volunteering with local nonprofits and the communities they serve.

This year, our Los Angeles office partnered with SuitUp, an organization that increases career readiness for all students through innovative business plan competitions. Internationally, our EMEA and APAC offices partnered with local community organizations.

Meet Our New HQ

2022 brought new changes to TOMS. We reduced our footprint and moved to a smaller, more efficient space in Culver City.

As part of bringing our new space to life, we invited local artists to share their interpretation of equity on our walls. The result? A beautiful, diverse, inspiring place for all.
