US$10,000 - $20,000
Description

By selecting programs that bring diverse audiences of children outside for adventurous recreation, environmental stewardship, and nature-based education, the KEEN Effect Youth program is actively building a future full of formative experiences that build lasting outdoor values defined during childhood.

We are discovering and funding the best grassroots organizations developing youth (age 18 or under) in the outdoors worldwide. Our grantees are growing environmental literacy in youth by breaking down the silos of outdoor activities, embracing creativity and ingenuity in their programming, and addressing urgent conservation needs while diversifying the demographic imbalances of today's outdoor participant (such as identities like race, sex, gender, & ability).

Applicable projects are conducted by 501(c)3 non-profits (or local equivalent) that inspire youth outdoor participation, engage diverse audiences, are innovative and creative in their approach, and are willing to collaboratively share the story of their work through KEEN.

The KEEN Effect Youth program grants up to $100,000 per year to varying numbers of applicants at either the US$10,000 or $20,000 per grant over a two-year cycle.* After the open application period ends,  a team of KEEN employees will accept or deny each application within the month of March, and the 2019 grantees will be reported in the month of April.

Thanks for applying!

*Total grant amount will be distributed in two equal payments over two years, assuming all grant reporting requirements are followed.
