Community Partnerships

Community Partnerships

Our partnerships begin with our store teams, who may connect with nonprofits in several ways:

  • Promoting or partnering for events and service projects
  • Raising visibility with REI customers
  • Offering product donations
  • Inviting and selecting the organization for an REI grant

REI Grants

REI provides grants to select nonprofits that care for the outdoor places our customers love. The process begins with our store teams, who establish meaningful partnerships with organizations and invite them to apply for funding. REI does not accept unsolicited grant applications.
