MAC Cosmetics Team Raises $100K+ for AIDS Walk New York

May 23, 2022 9:30 AM ET

Sunday, May 15 marked MAC Cosmetics’ exciting in-person return to the AIDS Walk New York! MAC has been participating in the annual AIDS Walk New York for over 20 years, which raises funds for primary beneficiary Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) as well as other local organizations fighting to end HIV/AIDS. This year, the MAC Cosmetics team raised over $100,000 for the 37th AIDS Walk New York, beating the team goal and securing the spot of #1 Corporate Fundraiser for this year’s event.

Approximately 100 team members reunited in-person to walk the four miles through Central Park, showing the brand’s commitment to ending HIV/AIDS. Overall, the walk raised over $2.2 million dollars for critical HIV programs and services in the tri-state area.

MAC employees are encouraged to fundraise and help make an impact in their communities through the AIDS Walk Matching Grant program, where every dollar that an employee raises for an AIDS Walk event is matched by the MAC VIVA GLAM Fund. Since 1994, working to end HIV/AIDS has been a key philanthropic pillar for the brand through MAC’s charitable campaign, MAC VIVA GLAM.

MAC employees raised $50,104.11 which with the VIVA GLAM match totaled $100,208.22. To learn more about the AIDS Walk and how you can get involved, please visit the AIDS Walk New York home page.
