BOGS Impact FundDeadline: July 22, 2019
The BOGS Impact Fund will invest in outdoor education programs that provide lower income youth with opportunities to get outside to learn, play, and grow. Many young people, especially those in underserved and low-income communities, don’t develop a relationship with the outdoors due to lack of education, access, and resources.
The BOGS Impact Fund will award three-year grants to a select number of non-profits. Every grant will include an in-kind donation of BOGS Footwear. Projects should engage underserved/low-income youth and encourage those youth to grow and learn outdoors throughout their lives. Awarded organizations should be able to demonstrate how the outdoors acts as the perfect classroom to learn, play, and enjoy being a kid. The goal of this program is to provide resources and dollars to remove barriers, so all kids can have access to outdoor education opportunities.
Amount: $10,000 over a three-year period. Organizations that are awarded will also receive 10-20 pairs of BOGS Footwear each year of the grant.
Eligibility: Organizations based in the United States or Canada that are designated as a federally tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
