What is the OMG Patagonia Corporate Grant Program?

The OMG Patagonia Corporate Grant Program supports grassroots activist organizations that have direct-action agendas and are working on strategic, multipronged campaigns to preserve and protect the environment. The focuses on organizations that have or can create a strong base of support. Because we’re a privately held company, we have the freedom to fund risk-taking, off-the-beaten-track groups, and that’s where we believe our small grants are most effective.

The grant supports local groups that work to protect local habitats and frontline communities through bold, original actions. The program is most interested in awarding these grants to organizations that identify and work on the root causes of problems, and approach issues with a commitment to long-term change. We look for innovative groups whose work includes specific goals, objectives, action plans and measures for evaluating success.
