First daughter Ivanka Trump was born into wealth, but she’s worked hard to earn a reputation as a respected businesswoman in her own right. Not your average heiress, she’s spent more time in the boardroom than on the party circuit. And as Trump prepares to celebrate her birthday on Oct. 30, the spotlight on her is brighter than ever.
While Trump has been in the public eye her entire life, she made even bigger headlines when she helped her father pivot from billionaire businessman to president. Recently, she made the transition to federal employee herself, taking a job as an unpaid advisor to her father.
As America’s first daughter turns 36, find out how Ivanka Trump earns her millions — and how she spends her fortune.
Ivanka Trump’s Net Worth: $300 Million
Widely known as President Trump’s favorite child, Ivanka is worth $300 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. While it’s far less than her father’s net worth, it is notably higher than her sister Tiffany Trump, who’s worth just $10 million. Brothers Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump also have worths of $300 million, while Barron Trump, the youngest of the group, is just 11 years old.

Ivanka Trump Clothing Sales
In 2016, the Ivanka Trump Clothing line reported that sales were up 21 percent, according to Bloomberg. Trump is no longer involved in the business, however. She took a formal leave of absence from the Trump Organization, as well as her apparel and accessories brand, when her father became president.

The company faced challenges at the beginning of the year, as online sales tumbled 26 percent in January, and Nordstrom announced it would no longer carry the brand, according to CNBC.
But better times might be ahead. In a March 2017 interview with Refinery29, the company's new president, Abigail Klem, said the line realized some of its highest-ever sales in February.
Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry
The Ivanka Trump Collection included fine jewelry items, such as rings, earrings, necklaces and pendants. The luxe line was all about sparkles — and high price tags.
Sales revenue from the collection hasn't been publicly disclosed. A March 2017 report from CNN revealed that Ivanka was shutting down her fine jewelry line to focus on more affordable costume items, though.
The Future of the Trump Organization
Before her father became president, he helmed the Trump Organization, the 48th largest privately held company in the U.S., according to research firm PrivCo. The company employed nearly 22,500 people and garnered $9.5 billion in revenue in 2015.
In 2013, Trump announced plans to divide his company among his oldest three children — Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric — instead of naming a successor. At the time, Business Insider reported that Ivanka had taken the lead on company negotiations, while Donald Jr. handled leasing and Eric managed construction.
The dollar amount Ivanka will inherit is unclear, but it’s sure to be a hefty sum.
Ivanka Trump on the Campaign Trail
Largely considered one of her father’s greatest assets, Ivanka played a major role in his success on the campaign trail. She attended numerous fundraisers on his behalf, but tickets to see the eldest Trump daughter in person weren’t cheap. In September 2016, she headlined a Peoria, Ill., luncheon, where individual tickets started at $500 and went all the way up to $250,000 per couple.

Ivanka Trump’s Husband’s Net Worth: $800 Million
While it’s unclear how much of Jared Kushner's net worth is tied to his wife's fortune, he is currently valued at $800 million. Kushner works in the White House as a senior advisor to his father-in-law, President Trump. The job is unpaid, though.
Before marrying Ivanka in 2009, Kushner bought a majority stake in the New York Observer for nearly $10 million, according to the New York Times. He resigned from the publication and sold his stake to a family trust before taking an office at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Ivanka Trump’s Kids Vacation in Style
Ivanka puts in long hours at the office, but she also enjoys swapping her high heels for sandals on family vacations.
In December 2016, she and Kushner took their kids on a tropical retreat to the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in Hawaii. Nightly rates at the five-star resort cost between $902 and $1,994, according to TripAdvisor. The trip wasn’t all lavish, though. The family flew the first leg of the journey on JetBlue.
Since her father took office, Ivanka has also taken her young family to his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Fla. Specific costs associated with their visits haven’t been made public, but the president’s first three Florida trips cost taxpayers $10 million, according to the Washington Post.
At Home With Ivanka Trump
Ivanka and Kushner currently reside in one of the most expensive zip codes in the nation. They rent a $5.5 million, 6,870-square-foot home in Washington, D.C.
Before relocating to the nation’s capital after her father’s inauguration, Ivanka and her family lived in a four-bedroom New York City penthouse apartment, located in the Trump Park Avenue building.
Ivanka paid $1.52 million for another condo in the same building. She bought the two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in 2004, when she was still single. The property initially hit the market in December 2016 for $4.1 million, or $15,000 per month in rent. It has since been reduced to $13,000 in monthly rent.
Ivanka Trump’s Wedding
It isn’t entirely clear how much Ivanka and Kushner spent on their wedding in October 2009, but the event definitely wasn’t cheap.
Married at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., Trump wore a Vera Wang gown estimated at $50,000 and jewelry worth $220,000. Flowers for the affair were arranged by wedding designer Preston Bailey, who was charging approximately $5,000 to $500,000 around the time of her nuptials.
Ivanka Trump’s First Job
Most kids work at the mall or in fast food joints for their first jobs, but a teenage Ivanka landed a deal with Elite Model Management for hers. High school was a balancing act for the now-first daughter, as she split her time between classes at Choate Rosemary Hall and modeling gigs.
Some of her most high-profile works include spreads in Elle, a charity runway show for Versace, a Tommy Hilfiger campaign and the cover of Seventeen magazine. Upon graduation, Trump gave up modeling to earn a degree from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
