    Patagonia donates 1% of its sales to support environmental organizations around the world at the grassroots level in countries and communities where they have people on the ground. Grants, typically up to $12,000, are awarded to organizations working on action-oriented environmental projects that build public involvement and support and have measurable goals, objectives and action plans. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis at local stores and semi-annually (April 30 and August 31) at the company’s headquarters.

    For more information, visit Patagonia’s website, or go directly to the grant guidelines.
