Outdoor Nation and Merrell are proud to announce the launch of the 2013 The Pack Project Grants Program – working to increase participation in active outdoor recreation while also creating meaningful connections to the natural world.
In 2013, Merrell will be awarding $25,000 to a minimum of 10 projects through their ambassador program called The Pack. There will be two cycles of the grant program, one in spring and one in late summer. Grants will be awarded to the most innovative, impactful and sustainable projects focusing on increasing outdoor recreation in communities across the country while also creating significant relationships with the environment. Applications are being accepted from individuals between the ages of 18 and 28 and 501c3 non-profits. Please note that individuals are eligible to apply but must have a 501c3 non-profit partner to act as the fiscal agent for the grant.
Deadline: Proposals must be submitted to Outdoor Nation by June 1, 2013.
