The North Face has been crafting quality outdoor clothing, backpacks and shoes for more than 50 years. We open ourselves to the wide range of cultures and experiences that connect us. Since 2010, we’ve been creating access and driving equity in the outdoors by funding hundreds of organisations around two main themes: Enabling Exploration and Loving Wild Places. Now, nearly a decade later, the project continues to provide support and funds to nonprofits that focus on that mission. They will be joined by other leaders across culture, entertainment, academia and the outdoors to create scalable solutions to increase access to exploration. Factors such as geographic diversity of applicants are taken into consideration too when making funding decisions. The North Face® Explore Fund™ goal is to inspire and enable the next generation of explorers by funding non-profit organisations that are working to re-connect children with nature.
