who we are
The Princess Project’s mission is to promote self-confidence and individual beauty. We do this by providing formal wear and accessories to high school teens who cannot otherwise afford them. Our effort is made possible through invaluable volunteer, donor, and community support via donations and financial gifts. We have locations throughout California including right here in Los Angeles. We also have our sister locations in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Sonoma County, and San Diego.

what we do

  1. gather. Each year, The Princess Project Los Angeles gathers formal dresses, tuxedos, suits, formal wear accessories and apparel, new shoes and other donations. These donations are provided to us by individual donors, formal wear drives, corporations, retailers and designers. We also fundraise for cash donations for our special programs. These special programs support our partners and can provide full prom packages to those teens who need the most support.
  2. organize. Our amazing group of volunteers – executive board, committee members and event volunteers – come together to organize our inventory, prepare for our public giveaways and put together our special programs. It is through our giveaways and events that we meet our goals and support our mission and values.
  3. share. In March and April of each year, we provide formal wear and prom packages to teens from all over the city and county of Los Angeles. And each year, our goals evolve and grow to serve the need of our Los Angeles community. We even help throw proms!

what we believe
The Princess Project Los Angeles’ number one goal is to create a positive, safe environment for teens to find the formal wear desired in an environment that embraces and celebrates everyone. By everyone we mean all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientation, disabilities and bodies of all shapes and sizes. We believe our work here in Los Angeles goes far beyond formal wear to instill a sense of pride and confidence in the teens we hope to reach each prom season. Our goal is to reach teens at a pivotal moment in their lives. We want to give them a wonderful, gender-inclusive experience that they will forever cherish, as we help prepare them for a rite of passage, their prom.
