Support the Closet
If you would like to donate gently used clothing to the Suit Yourself Closet or host a donation drive with your organization, please email us at SuitYourself@vcu.edu. We can share information about what items we are currently accepting, and we have materials to support the donation drive for your organization.
If you notice we are missing certain sizes, seasonal pieces or categories of professional wear, please let us know by email.
The Suit Yourself Closet also accepts direct monetary donations. Gifts will be used to provide materials for maintaining the Suit Yourself Closet and obtaining new, difficult-to-stock clothing items for students. You can make a one-time donation, a recurring donation, and even tag your business or employer for a matching donation program (VCU/VCU Health Employees can make donations through payroll deduction).
