KEEN footwear, announces its third year of the KEEN Effect grant program to support non-profits globally. This year’s grant-making program will award at least 10 grants totaling $100,000 to nonprofits around the world who preserve the natural environment as a way towards building stronger communities and a healthier planet.
“KEEN is a brand born of the outdoors, and we feel a responsibility to preserve and protect the places we play,” said Kirsten Blackburn, KEEN Effect’s Communications and Advocacy Manager. “Through the KEEN Effect grant program, we’re introduced to and inspired by groups working in local communities around the globe dedicated to just that. We look forward to supporting a new group of dedicated, grassroots partners through this year’s grant-making cycle.”
Since 2013. the KEEN Effect grant program has awarded over $220,000 to nonprofits in local communities throughout nine countries and 22 U.S. states. Positioned under the KEEN Effect – which has donated more than $10 million in cash and resources to nonprofits around the world since 2004 – the KEEN Effect grant program encourages non-profit organizations that align with the company’s outdoor-focused core values to apply for funding to support their on-the-ground enviromental work.
The application window is currently open and runs through June 10, with grantees announced on July 29.
