Our Programs


The mission of the Jan & Frank Day Foundation is to preserve and continue the legacy and visionary spirit of Jan and Frank Day, founders of Jafra Cosmetics, and to expand their philanthropic work helping women worldwide achieve financial independence by providing guidance, education, and support.


Jan and Frank Day’s original home in Malibu, California, is once again a place for women to find inspiration, guidance, and support as it was during the Day's lifetime. The foundation hosts events, classes, and gatherings empowering women on the path to financial independence. With your help, the original home of Jan and Frank Day can continue to be a place that continues to transform women.


Jan and Frank Day helped pave the way to financial independence for hundreds of thousands of women by providing assistance to business ownership in the beauty industry. The foundation is developing a program which introduces the beauty industry to aspiring makeup artists and provides guidance to success in entrepreneurship. A panel of mentors and experts will provide experience and education on how to make the most of beauty business ventures. Real-life scenarios for aspiring makeup artists and experience working with models and clients on photoshoots and film sets will be part of the program. With your help, we can pay homage to Jan and Frank Day and again pave the way for more women to be financially independent in the beauty industry.


Jan Day worked four jobs to put herself through college and suffered through much hardship to obtain her degree. Women's education was something very close to her heart because of her own experiences as a struggling young woman. During her lifetime she had created the Jan and Frank Day Scholarship Fund which paid for multiple college tuitions. The Jan & Frank Day Foundation is developing a program that will pay for women's college or vocational education in the fields of Beauty, Fashion, Science, Music, Entertainment, Advertising & Marketing, Wellness, and Literary Arts. A panel of experts from each industry will chose a woman from applicants in each category. The Jan & Frank Day Foundation will connect each recipient with an expert in their industry who will act as a mentor on the journey in the student’s chosen field. With your help, we can continue Jan and Frank Day's philanthropic work to help women find higher education.
