Giving Back


We believe in making a positive impact on as many people as we can. And to show that support in practical ways, a portion of every dollar you spend at Face Value goes to help people and causes here in Charlottesville and around the world. Here are a few things we support and believe in.

Clean Water Initiatives & Environmental

Did You Know? Only one in seven people on the planet have access to clean water?

Each year in April, in partnership with Aveda, we raise money and awareness about the desperate need for clean water around the world.

Since 2007, Aveda’s Earth Month efforts have zeroed in on the world water crisis, raising $12 million to protect clean water. This money has funded grants for our global Earth Month partner, Global Greengrants Fund, that have helped:

– Protect or improve 550,000 people’s access to clean water

– Support 16,000 women in becoming activists for clean water in their communities

– Enable 275 communities to take action against toxic industrial pollution

– Fund hundreds of other clean water projects
