Dress Down Fridays

The Clerk & Comptroller's Dress Down Friday charity program began in 1994. In return for wearing casual attire to work each Friday, employees have the option of donating $2 a week from their paycheck. The contributions are donated to nonprofit organizations selected by the employees. Since its inception, the program has donated more than $1 million to local charities.

Nonprofit organizations must be nominated by a Clerk & Comptroller employee to be considered for the Dress Down Friday program. Employees nominate and vote on charities each year.

To be eligible, organizations must:

  • be nominated by a Clerk & Comptroller employee
  • be registered as 501(c)3 or have a 990 form
  • be independently rated
  • serve Palm Beach County residents
