Our Story

Since launching the Z SUPPLY brand in 2013, being a positive force in our community has been incredibly important to us. We are so thankful for our continued success, but with success comes great responsibility. With the mantra that ‘we’re all in this together’, Z SUPPLY launched its philanthropic arm, the Z SUPPLY Foundation in 2021. The foundation is committed to supporting social, environmental and educational qualified tax-exempt 501(c) (3) public charities in the United States. Each year, the foundation will have a specific focus, giving us the opportunity to support all the causes that mean so much to us as a brand.

In 2021, the foundation focused its efforts on educational opportunities by allocating 100% of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday sales made on ZSUPPLY.COM into specifically tailored Z SUPPLY Foundation scholarships (excluding taxes and shipping charges).
