Welcome to the Wear Confidence Project, serving the community of College Place, Washington.
We are a non-profit organization that provides formal wear for school events at little, to no cost, to the student.
Our goal is to remove the financial barrier to create inclusion and accessibility to school events.
The Wear Confidence Project celebrates bodies of all shapes and sizes. Our work goes far beyond the dress to instill a sense of pride and confidence. We want to offer students an opportunity to see themselves in a way they may never have before. There is a sense of dignity and self worth that comes from looking your best.
Through our one-on-one appointments, each student gets a mini-mentorship experience as we help them find and express their own kind of beautiful. Through the formal wear rental process, we have an opportunity to reach students at a pivotal moment in their lives. You can never underestimate the power of a kind word, a connection felt, and the precious gift of time and undivided attention.
To donate formal wear (both male and female), volunteer your time or funds, make an appointment for rental, or general questions please email us at
