Annual Report 2018: Participation

Together We Are A Force For Participation

Raised 2.3 million dollars

Outdoor Participation has never been better or in better hands than it is with the Outdoor Foundation. In 2018, OIA’s philanthropic arm, the Outdoor Foundation had a record-breaking fundraising year with over $2 million raised, created a new community-based grant giving strategy called Thrive Outside Communities and supported 63 community non-profit projects. Through collaboration with outdoor industry stakeholders, the Outdoor Foundation was able to rethink its strategic direction and build a high-impact program that will succeed in getting America’s youth thriving outside. Here’s a snapshot of what we were able to achieve in 2018.
