WHY WE SUPPORT THESE PARTNERS

With more resources, our local partners can have even greater impact. We answer this call by mobilizing a broad network that believes in the value of outdoor programs for young women – connecting our partners with a community of support that extends far beyond their hometowns.

Our grants run the gamut from increasing scholarship funds for well-established programs, to helping smaller, newer groups take their impact to the next level, and everything in between. As our grant portfolio grows, we will support partners in new communities and states.

OUR IMPACT

We provide grants to local partners based on the quality of their programs, their commitment to expanding access for underprivileged young women, and their potential for even greater impact with the help of increased resources. These community change-makers are equipping and empowering young women to embark on an array of human-powered adventures — from backpacking and mountain biking to mountaineering and more — in their backyards and beyond.
