Our Retail 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 Retail Grants Program funds projects that take place within the communities of our Patagonia retail stores throughout the US and Canada. Our retail store employees review proposals and make funding decisions.
Patagonia remains committed to pledging one percent of our total annual sales to grassroots organizations across our communities. Opportunities to apply for this program will be offered by invitation only. If your organization is included in this process, you can expect to hear from us by August 2021.
