About the Organization:
KEEN, Inc. is a values-led, independently owned outdoor footwear brand from Portland, Oregon with a mission to responsibly create original and versatile products, improve lives, and inspire outside adventure. KEEN’s corporate social responsibility program, KEEN Effect, activates communities to protect and preserve the natural environment where we work and play through giving back, taking action, and reducing the impacts of our supply chain.
2020 Youth Grant Program:
KEEN’s Youth Grant Program funds the best grassroots organizations immersing kids in the outdoors. Since 2014, our partners have brought thousands of youth outside for recreation, nature-based education, and environmental stewardship, actively building a future full of formative experiences and lasting values built in nature.
We support programs that work to inspire outdoor participation, engage underserved communities of youth with innovative and creative programming, and are willing to share their stories with KEEN’s audience. If you are a registered non-profit coming based in any country where KEEN does business, you’re eligible to apply!
This program grants up to $100,000 per year to varying numbers of partners at either US$10,000 or $20,000 per grant over a two-year cycle.
