Logging in to the Naturalizer Shoes/ Famous Footwear parent company corporate social responsibility site: https://caleres.com/community/ highlights the commitment that Caleres places on giving back.  The corporate mission is to inspire people to feel good … feet first. Five fundamental values guide us toward that end: Passion, Accountability, Curiosity, Creativity and Caring.

In 1921, founder, George Warren Brown, established a trust to provide funds to charitable organizations. To date, more than $20 million to 501(c)(3) has been donated to organizations in St. Louis and many communities around the world where the company operates.

The mission is to support charitable organizations, which are either…

  • Strategically aligned with our mission, vision and values
  • Focused on advancing the footwear industry
  • Benefit the overall St. Louis community in growing and attracting new businesses and residents

In addition to the foundation, the company has other charitable efforts. Through the companies’ Famous Footwear stores, the company has raised more than $15 million for the March of Dimes Foundation March for Babies in communities across America.

In addition to donating, company associates have dedicated thousands and thousands of hours to local volunteerism to support organizations such as United Way, Two Ten Footwear Foundation and the American Heart Association. As a company, they encourage and applaud those who give of themselves for causes about which they are passionate. Participating in iGive.com enables shoppers to give back the causes about which they are passionate with their online purchases.

The name, Caleres comes from the Latin word calere – meaning to glow with passion or intensity. With persistent determination, Caleres has preserved the founding spirit that launched the company in 1878: a ferocity for crafting the perfect fit. Today,  are they among North America’s top footwear companies. Our portfolio focuses on contemporary fashion, healthy living and family. Merchants include: Naturalizer, Famous Footwear, Dr. Scholl’s Shoes, LifeStride, Bzees, Ryka, Sam Edleman, Franco Sarto, Via Spiga, Diane vo Furstenberg (DVF), Carlos by Carlos Santana and Fergie Footwear.
