American Cancer Society
In 1977, ACS became our "charity of focus." Donations are raised through ongoing initiatives involving the entire PartyLite family of Leaders, Consultants and Customers who get involved in their communities.
Corporate IMPACT Award
In the last 13 years, the PartyLite family has donated more than $12.2 million to the ACS fight to eradicate cancer. ACS has honored PartyLite with the Society’s Corporate Impact Award for the last five years in recognition of giving $1 million or more in a calendar year.
PartyLite is included in an elite group of eight corporations with National Teams participating in both Relay For Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events across the country.
PartyLite National Conference
We take time at our annual National Conference to present the year’s donation to ACS. In 2010, our $820,512 donation took our 13-year total contribution to just over $12.2 million.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer®
In 2010, PartyLite joined the Making Strides National Team program to raise funds and awareness to fight breast cancer. To date, 70+ PartyLite teams are participating in nationwide events during the October 2010 Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Relay For Life™
Since 2008, PartyLite has fielded more than 1,200 teams with more than 11,000 team members participating in community Relay For Life events. These efforts have raised more than $1.2 million to-date. In a 2010 Wall Street Journal page, ACS thanked all companies participating in the Relay For Life National Corporate Team Program. PartyLite had the fifth highest number of Relay teams in the country.
Change the World™ Program
We invite Hosts and Guests at Parties and Customers online to join us in supporting ACS by rounding up the purchase price of their PartyLite order to the nearest dollar or up to $10. This "change" goes directly to ACS.
OTHER CHARITABLE EFFORTS
Ronald McDonald House
PartyLite Consultants make an annual contribution to the local chapter of the Ronald McDonald House in the city hosting our National Conference. We’re proud to say that the donations made to host city Ronald McDonald Houses have totaled more than $320,000.
In 2010, St. Louis opened the 300th Ronald McDonald House. In honor of the PartyLite commitment to this worthy charity, one of the 11 bedrooms in the house was named after PartyLite.
Today Show Holiday Gift Drive
Anne Butler, President of PartyLite Worldwide, presents the PartyLite product contribution on Today. In the past four years, PartyLite has donated products with a retail value of more than $12.6 million. The products are then given to non-profit organizations served by Today Show Charities.
Every year, a Leader in each PartyLite Region serves as it’s Regional Ambassador, spearheading community charitable activities, such as organizing a local Relay For Life team. They serve as guiding lights in their PartyLite teams to help maintain the PartyLite tradition of giving and serving others.
