Since 2010, we’ve been creating access and driving equity in the outdoors
by funding hundreds of organisations around two main themes:
Enabling Exploration and Loving Wild Places.

ENABLING EXPLORATION

Exploration is within everyone, but some face more barriers than others. By removing obstacles and empowering people, we change the way we think about the outdoors, ourselves and our place on the planet. We open ourselves to the wide range of cultures and experiences that connect us.

LOVING WILD PLACES

For over 50 years, we’ve worked to protect wild places and create connections to outdoor playgrounds, both on mountaintops and in city parks. There is incredible value in the physical and mental benefits of exploring the outdoors, and we want that opportunity to be available for everyone, now and into the future.
