Charitable giving has long been a part of who we are at Rosce Jewelers. As a company, we strongly believe it is essential to give back to the communities in which we work and live. Our efforts are supported by our customers and our employees, who play a critical role in our signature giving programs.
We wanted to give back in the best way we know how: classic and timeless jewelry. Rosce Jewelers donates 10% of the proceeds from each jewelry sold.
We have hand selected two organizations, which focus on underserved women and children. We felt these organizations could use our support in an effort to raise awareness and monetary aid.
Women For Women International (WFWI) supports marginalized women in countries affected by conflict and war. Since 1993, the organization has served nearly 429,000 women, by equipping them with life, business and vocational skills. With these tools, women can earn income, improve their health and well-being and learn about their legal rights to create a sustainable difference in their own lives and the lives of those around them. The organization was founded by 23-year-old Zainab Salib, an Iraqi-American humanitarian and entrepreneur. Under her leadership, from 1993 to 2011, WFWI grew to distribute more than $118 million in aid and loans to women in eight conflict locations. Among other accolades, Salib has been named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum (2007) and a Clinton Global Initiative Leader (2010).
Diamond Empowerment Fund (D.E.F) was founded in 2007 by leaders in the diamond industry, music mogul/business entrepreneur Russel Simmons, and social justice advocate Dr. Benjamin Chaivs, Jr. Their mission is to empower youth from countries where diamonds are found to become a new generation of ethical leaders through access to higher education. To-date, over two thousand college-age students across Africa and India have received financial assistance or have been awarded scholarships as a result of the generous support received from the diamond industry. Those that have since graduated have returned home to support their families and create opportunity in their communities.
