As a result of the unprecedented times, and our commitment to the emergency needs of the outdoor community, we are shifting our current Explore Fund open application grant cycle timeline.
All applications submitted by our April 8, 2020 deadline will remain in the system and eligible for review at a later date. Our intention is to complete the grant cycle once some of the urgent needs of our community are met.

About The Explore Fund
At The North Face, we believe that exploration can be a powerful force for good in the world. Curiosity, courage, and connection don't just propel us in our outdoor pursuits—they inspire us to do more for communities everywhere.
Since 2010, the Explore Fund Grant program has created access and driven equity in the outdoors by funding hundreds of nonprofit organizations around two themes: Enabling Exploration and Loving Wild Places.
We partner with The National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks and a nonprofit partner to the National Park Service, to fund programs in national parks and on federally managed lands. Our shared goal is to encourage and enable people from all walks of life and abilities to get outside and explore.
