Type of Grantmaker

Company-sponsored foundation






Established in 2000 in NY - Established by M.A.C. Cosmetics, the fund supports men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS globally. Introducing its first VIVA GLAM lipstick that same year, the fund decided that every cent of the selling price of the VIVA GLAM lipsticks would go to the M.A.C. AIDS Fund. With a total of four VIVA GLAM lipsticks now sold worldwide, and through the annual Kids Helping Kids Card Program, M.A.C. Cosmetics has provided over $90 million (US) to date for the M.A.C. AIDS Fund.

Purpose and Activities

The foundation supports AIDS research, outreach and resource organizations, with emphasis on innovative programs that deal directly with the most marginalized, stigmatized, and under-heard victims.
