OUTER PEACE COMMUNITY GRANT PROGRAM
Time and time again, we see the power of local communities addressing their needs. Embracing this understanding, our store teams with deep roots to their communities run our Outer Peace Community Grant Program. Our store teams seek to listen to the needs of their community, supporting the people and organizations within them to remove the barriers that deny people who have been traditionally marginalized their connection to nature. To support this important work, we provide grants of up to $2,500 CAD, or local equivalent, to grassroots organizations.
We trust your judgement on the best use of the funds and therefore provide them without restriction. If you need them to support your operating expenses, great. If you need them to support a specific project, equally great. Our ask is simply that you present a compelling case for the work you wish to pursue.
To provide fair opportunity to each organization, we ask that you apply for a single grant to your local store. If you have chapters in multiple geographic locations, each chapter can submit a single grant application to the store within their local community.
We value the partners we support and strive to develop deep relationships with each of them. We see our grants as a single dimension of our partnership. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to work with local store teams to explore ways to better support their mission. This may include hosting events, fundraisers, supporting volunteering, support via our social channels and any other relevant dimensions that add value to your work and move you closer in your mission.
