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. In 2019, we reopened the doors of The Day House which has become the heart of the foundation. 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 paved the way to financial independence for hundreds of thousands of women in the beauty industry during their lifetimes. In April 2021 we launched the Jan Day Makeup For Success Program to help women who could never fulfill their dreams to become Professional Makeup Artists because they lacked the resources, finances, and guidance to do so. The foundation is providing 1,500 recipients of the program with a two month professional makeup artistry course to become certified pro makeup artists, mentorship provided by professionals in the beauty, entertainment and fashion industries, and a pro makeup artistry kit of $1000 worth of cosmetic products to kickstart their careers. With your contribution, we can continue Jan and Frank Day's legacy and help give women the support they need to make their dreams come true!


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 several professional fields. A panel of experts from each industry will choose a woman from the 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.
