The North Face Explore Fund
DescriptionThe Fund is the philanthropic arm of the outdoor clothing and gear Manufacturer. The Fund supports U. S. nonprofits that are looking to increase participation in the outdoors and work in innovative ways to protect our environment. Grants are made in two categories: Enabling New Explorers and Protecting Our Environment. In the Enabling New Explorers category, the Fund focuses on programs that introduce underrepresented communities to outdoor adventures in potentially new and interesting ways. The Protecting Our Environment category focuses on programs that work to protect our ecosystems and our ability to continue to enjoy them. Across both categories, programs with strong outdoor engagement in activities such as skiing, kayaking, backpacking and other outdoor sports are preferred. The Fund also awards the Move Mountains grant in honor of long-time company leader Ann Krcik with the aim of elevating women leaders. The grants are allocated through a closed grant process separate from the annual open cycle. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
