KEEN EFFECT II Applications Now Open

We are excited to announce that applications are now open for the KEEN Effect II.

At KEEN, we’re committed to inspiring responsible outdoor participation to help preserve the places we all play, and the KEEN Effect is a way for us to support organizations who are dedicated to just that.

Through the KEEN Effect, we award $100,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations around the world who are dedicated to responsible outdoor participation. Help us find those groups!

In 2014, 25 non-profit projects were funded in 7 countries around the world including 16 states across the United States. Through the $100,000 in grants, 23,737 people were directly engaged with the outdoors while they spent 284,908 hours spent outside responsibly enjoying the outdoors.

We want to continue this great program by celebrating your local heroes!
