CONNECTING AMERICANS TO THE OUTDOORS

Some of the best projects getting youth outdoors take place at the local level by small grassroots organizations – making it difficult to find, fund and evaluate effective programs. This has created a major gap between worthy nonprofits that desperately need support and organizations interested in investing.

The Outdoor Foundation has become the bridge. The Foundation has provided more than 500 organizations with over $5 million in grants that have connected 30,000 young people to outdoor recreation and nature-based activities, from hiking and biking to camping and climbing.
