Our Nonprofit Partnership: Socksmith X Beam

Our Nonprofit Partnership: Socksmith X Beam

We kicked off 2022 with an exciting new partnership with Beam Impact, a mission-driven company using the power of capitalism to raise more money for nonprofits. 

Until the day humans evolve out of the need for socks, Socksmith will be donating 1% of all sales to your choice of four nonprofits. 

Fancy words, but how does it work?

As far as our sock lovers are concerned, Beam Impact takes 1% of your order at checkout and donates that money directly to the nonprofit. The best part? You get to choose which organizations you want to support at checkout!

Whether it is a single pair of socks, a Sock of the Month subscription, our epoxy-free water bottles, or our super-soft Bamboo socks, Socksmith has pledged 1% of every order to benefit responsible, wholesome organizations working to make Earth a better place to live. 

Why are we doing this?

If you are new to Socksmith, you should know this is not our first campaign to help our fellow humans and community. We're also donating 10% of the proceeds from our Endangered Species collection to organizations fighting to save our planet, but you can see more about that here.

Similarly, our Outlands USA collection is made to be as ecologically friendly as possible (manufactured in the USA from recycled textiles).

All we are saying is that this is not our first rodeo, we are constantly on the lookout for ways to become a stronger community-first and ecologically responsible company!

What nonprofits can I donate to?

We've selected four organizations which are close to our hearts at Socksmith. Each of the nonprofits below were selected by our owners. We've made each milestone tangible, and when we've achieved each goal for each nonprofit, we'll start over. You can see our progress here.

We're thrilled to introduce:

Housing Matters

Fund bedding and transitional shelter for 15 unhoused individuals. Read more.


Fund 2.5 days of overnight summer camp for an LGBTQ+ teen via CampOUT Read more.


Fund registration costs for two student-athletes to participate in one season of events via The National Interscholastic Cycling Association Read more.

Fund medical supplies to support 125 people injured by the war in Ukraine via United Help Ukraine Read more.


A message from Beam Impact

“Our founders made Beam because they realize a lot of us want to make a difference every day, and we have to buy stuff all the time. 

With that, most of us (91%!) would prefer to spend our money with brands that are *actually* mission-driven (meaning they directly donate to nonprofits, practice consistent responsible business practices, etc.) but it is tough when we are not really sure which brands are walking-the-walk, rather than just talking-the-social-media-talk. 

For the brands actually donating to causes, they are having a hard time reaching people who care about those same causes. That’s where Beam comes in.”

So many reasons to love Socksmith

Our style is undeniable, our designs are unique, and our eco-friendly materials are hard to find anywhere else. Add on top of that a chance for you to make an impact just by shopping with us? We think this is the start of a beautiful friendship.

May we suggest starting your impact latest sock drops?
