Outdoor Foundation / Outdoor Industry Association
2016 Progress Report
Committed to provide opportunities for at least 100,000 children to get outdoors and active, particularly at our nation’s parks in the National Park Service’s centennial year. The Outdoor Foundation and Outdoor Industry Association will build a web-based platform that allows nonprofit programs and schools across the country to find funding to get children active outdoors.
“As the philanthropic arm of the Outdoor Industry Association, the Outdoor Foundation is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and growing future generations of outdoor leaders and enthusiasts. Through groundbreaking research, youth engagement and community grant-making, the Foundation works with partners to mobilize a major cultural shift that leads all Americans to the great outdoors. In just six years, the Outdoor Foundation has invested more than $4 million into nearly 800 not-for-profit and college programs that have connected 200,000 young people to the outdoors.”
