Corporate Grants Program
Through our corporate grants program, we fund environmental work that takes place within the United States and is either national in scope or not located near one of our U.S. retail stores. It is a broad program that essentially encompasses all projects that do not fall within one of our International, Retail, Media or World Trout grants programs.
As with all Patagonia grants programs, our Corporate Grants Program supports small grassroots activist organizations with provocative direct-action agendas, working strategically on multipronged campaigns to preserve and protect our environment. We help local groups that work to protect local habitats and frontline communities through bold, original actions.
We are most interested in making corporate grants to organizations that identify and work on the root causes of problems and approach issues with a commitment to long-term change. We look for innovative groups with proposed projects that are quantifiable, with specific goals, objectives and action plans, and that include measures for evaluating success.
Because we're a privately held company, we have the freedom to fund groups off the beaten track, and that's where we believe our small grants are most effective. The funding range for a corporate grant is typically between $10,000 and $20,000, depending on the specific needs of the project.
We accept one proposal per group per our fiscal year (May 1–April 30). There are two annual deadlines for the Corporate Grants Program:
April 30 All applications received in April will receive a response by the end of August.
August 31 All applications received in August will receive a response by the end of January.
