Community Engagement

“We fund some amazing organizations that work with kids who’ve never had the chance to explore nature freely. Since 2010 we’ve been able to serve more than 100,000 youth through the support of over 250 organizations across 46 states.”

-Ann Krcik, Director of Brand Communications and Outdoor Exploration


Our goal is to inspire the next generation of explorers and conservationists by helping them discover nature's playground. The average American child spends 44 hours each week engaged with electronic media. Ultimately, we own the responsibility to inspire and develop the next generation of athletes and enthusiasts.

To help ignite a global movement of outdoor exploration, love for the natural world and an unwavering commitment to protect it, we welcome new participants to the outdoors through hundreds of events sponsored by The North Face each year. In addition to these activities, we extend our reach through support of non-profit organizations, establishing programs that connect participants with close-to-home recreation opportunities, and creating a connection with young leaders, inspiring them to explore and conserve.
