3 Nonprofits to Support This Giving Tuesday
Our Partners in Outdoor Access
Connecting people to their passions—that’s what we’re all about. But it’s a mission that’s impossible to accomplish on our own. Over the years, we’ve partnered with some incredible organizations to help us help connect people to what they love doing outside.
In honor of Giving Tuesday, we wanted to highlight some of our partners and the work they’re doing to reduce barriers to getting outside: The Nature Conservancy, Share Winter, and the National Ability Center. These organizations are our partners in the outdoors all year long, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting their efforts.
The Nature Conservancy
A global environmental nonprofit, The Nature Conservancy has worked to protect more than 119 million acres of land. Since 2008, we’ve partnered with the Conservancy to protect the places we love.
When Bear Ears National Monument, our own backyard, came under threat, we worked with the Conservancy to raise public awareness about how to make your voice heard. We’ve also continued to support The Nature Conservancy’s work at the Canyonlands Research Center, located in Bears Ears National Monument, as well as its ongoing efforts in removing invasive species from the Colorado River.
Share Winter Foundation
The Share Winter Foundation provides grants to partnering youth-serving organizations across the US to help reduce the barriers to access winter sports, primarily skiing and snowboarding. Share Winter seeks to make winter sports a more diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community through these partnerships, while creating a pipeline for lifetime winter sport participation. This winter alone, Share Winter will fund 45,000 youth across the country, with a goal to fund 100,000 youth in their winter sports journey by 2028.
National Ability Center
Headquartered in Park City, Utah, the National Ability Center (NAC) hosts programs year-round for individuals of all abilities and their families. From skiing in the winter to mountain biking in the summer, the NAC provides instruction, mentorship, and specialized equipment to reduce barriers to outdoor recreation. The NAC focuses on inclusive programming, so that family and friends can help provide a support system for recreation long after the program ends.
