Our Corporate Grants Program supports small, grassroots activist organizations that have provocative direct-action agendas and that are working strategically on multipronged campaigns to preserve and protect our environment. We support local groups that work to protect local habitats and frontline communities through bold, original actions.
We are most interested in making these 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; that have specific goals, objectives, and action plans, and that include measures for evaluating success.
Patagonia’s Corporate Grants Program funds projects that take place within the US and Canada and are either national in scope or are not local to one of our North American retail stores. Proposals are reviewed and grants decisions made by an employee grants council at our company headquarters.
Changes to be aware of: we have consolidated our previously held April 30 and August 31 deadlines into one deadline later this year, which will be by invitation only. If your organization is included in this process, you can expect to hear from us in the fall.
