The North Face Explore Fund supports organizations that encourage youth outdoor participation, focusing primarily on creating more connections of children to nature, increasing access to both front & backcountry recreation, as well as providing education for both personal & environmental health.
For 2019, applications will fall into two categories (Organizations should indicate in their application which category their program falls into):
* Enabling New Explorers
* Protecting Our Environment
Across both categories, programs should show how they are:
* Increasing diversity and access to underrepresented populations in the outdoors.
* Developing an appreciation for the outdoors through multiple engagements versus one-day events.
* Applicants that demonstrate how they are working to fulfill the above goals are preferred.
Maximum Award: $25,000
Deadline: The 2019 Explore Fund application is open from February 25th through April 2nd at 11:59 p.m. PT.
