Tenant Spotlight: The Masha Company

The Masha Company is an Afro-Latinx owned handmade online accessory store and a proud virtual tenant of the Community Foundation Campus.

The store aims to assist marginalized communities both local and out-of-state through monthly charitable donations. Each month a portion of store proceeds is contributed to an organization or individual in need of assistance whether its advancing the mission of a local nonprofit or assisting an individual belonging to a marginalized community who needs help with bills, clothing or food.

Initially, Masha was founded as a thrift store with the aim of making clothes shopping more accessible and sustainable. Eventually, Masha transitioned that store to handmade accessories in order to increase the revenue needed to make more impact in these communities. Masha wants their customers to know that with each purchase not only are they buying an item that they’ll be able to love, but they’re also contributing to making a difference for someone who desperately needs it.

In 2020,  The Masha Company was able to provide funding toward the hospital expenses of a young boy who had been involved in a near-drowning accident. They also had the opportunity to donate used clothing and cover supply costs for a nonprofit providing care packages to their local homeless community. Finally, with the assistance of fellow CF Campus tenants, they were able to distribute winter clothing and blankets to homeless individuals living near Santa Rita park in Tucson.

Being a CF Campus tenant, even virtually and despite this pandemic, means having a beautiful connection to a community of individuals who have it in their hearts to give, answer questions, and help wherever they can. Masha said they are extremely grateful that they chose the CF Campus as their business “home.”
