Explore Fund

Helping Kids discover Nature's playground

We at The North Face love the outdoors. It's in our DNA, and it defines us as a company. This passion and our desire to share is the catalyst behind The North Face® Explore Fund™. Our goal is to inspire and enable the next generation of explorers by funding non-profit organizations that are working to re-connect children with nature. We believe in the physical, emotional and social benefits of a healthy, active outdoor lifestyle, and that a strong connection with the outdoors will lead to greater support and protection of our natural landscapes.

The Explore Fund will support 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. Grants will be given up to $2,500, and to maximize the impact of The Explore Fund, we limit our grants to those applications that comply with the following guidelines:
