AT KEEN, WE’RE COMMITTED TO PRESERVING AND PROTECTING THE PLACES WE PLAY. THROUGH THE KEEN EFFECT GRANT PROGRAM, WE AWARD GRANTS TO GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATIONS AROUND THE WORLD WORKING TO DO JUST THAT.
SINCE OUR GRANTS PROGRAM STARTED IN 2013, WE’VE FUNDED:
PROJECTS IN THE
PROTECT THE PLACES WE PLAY
Funded projects must seek to protect and preserve life outside.
INNOVATIVE & CREATIVE
Funded projects will think outside the box, have clear goals and measurable objectives.
Funded projects will work collaboratively with KEEN to tell their project's story, provide updates, and complete a grant report.
Only 501(c)3 (or globally equivalent), non-religious organizations will be funded. We do not fund research projects, conferences, or events.
Funded projects will have great photos and engaging stories to share, and be willing to engage with #keeneffect.
DIVERSE AUDIENCES & GEOGRAPHY
Funded projects will often engage diverse audiences and/or different locations around the world.
