Terms & Conditions


Please read this Release (“Agreement”) carefully because it represents your legally binding agreement with Marc Fisher IP LLC and its affiliates (“Marc Fisher”).


Marc Fisher is passionate about getting involved, giving back, participating in social good and supporting those who are planting seeds of change no matter how big or how small. #MAKEYOURMARC encapsulates this belief. Its goal is very simple…to inspire, encourage, recognize and help fund activities of real life role models who do extraordinary work in their chosen field while giving them a platform to share their story and inspire others.

We are looking to celebrate real women making their marc & inspiring real change. Women who are making positive impact in the community, education, arts, entrepreneurship, human rights, health, technology, philanthropy, volunteerism and more. The #MAKEYOURMARC executive committee will review nominations monthly and select those women who they believe are making a difference, are in need of funds and the level impact the program/business has had. You will be notified via email if you or someone you have nominated has been selected to receive a grant. As Marc defines his legacy, he’s doing it by supporting women who are doing the same.

#MAKEYOURMARC is looking for a woman who is making her mark, while inspiring others to do the same. If you are selected, you will receive a grant for your business, non profit, or charity (the amount of the grant shall be determined in the discretion of the executive committee), Marc Fisher footwear (not to exceed 2 pairs of shoes) and have your story and program featured on the Marc Fisher website, public relations activities and social media.
