To apply, your organization must be a non-political, secular, U.S. federally tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, educational institution, or a public agency, or the international equivalent of these categories, and have a mission aligned with KEEN’s values and associated with the themes listed above: outdoor recreation/participation, public lands conservation, increasing equitable access to the outdoors, or natural disaster response. Although we love and support many other causes in various ways, we restrict donation requests through this portal to these themes.
