Gear up for Good



We are constantly looking for new ways to connect everything we do to the amazing conservation and environmental education partners we work with. These organizations are instrumental in protecting the public lands where we recreate and fostering the next generation of environmental enthusiasts.

Whenever you make a purchase of an Outdoor Project item from our General Store, 20% of the proceeds will be directed to your choice of non-profit partners. Instead of overwhelming you with so many to choose from, we have selected three partners with ongoing campaigns that you can elect to support with your purchase. You can also choose to direct your donation to's general fund.

Current Campaign Partners

The Conservation Alliance

The Conservation Alliance is a group of outdoor industry companies, founded in 1989, that disburses its collective annual membership dues to grassroots environmental organizations. Funding is directed to community-based campaigns to protect threatened wild habitat, preferably where outdoor enthusiasts recreate. The newly established Public Lands Defense Fund supports organizations working to preserve and defend the integrity of our public lands system.

HawkWatch International is a non-profit organization that works to protect raptors and our shared environment through scientific research and public education. The organization tackles the issues one at a time by looking at the latest data to balance smart development and the need for conservation. HawkWatch manages raptor migration tracking sites (the Bonney Butte site in Oregon is pictured above) that are open to the public during the fall migrations, providing volunteers and visitors a chance to watch raptor tracking up close.​


We believe good things come from people spending time outside. It’s about more than standing on the mountain top. It’s about nourishment and learning. It’s about protecting what sustains us. It’s about building relationships with the outdoors and each other. LEARN MORE and share the pledge to Adventure Like You Give A Damn.
