REI will donate up to $1 million to the National Forest Foundation in 2019 in continuation of a commitment that began in 2017 and bringing the co-op’s total investment in the NFF to nearly $3.5 million. Funds this year will support 15 projects that will bring significant and sustainable improvements to highly-used trails and campgrounds in National Forests and Grasslands across the country and engage youth in stewardship.
REI Co-op will reach a major impact milestone this year - $100 million invested in stewardship of the outdoors. To celebrate, today the co-op is launching Loving Our Local Outdoors and is inviting its members to help decide how $1 million in philanthropic giving will benefit their local communities.
REI Co-op is celebrating National Public Lands Day with over 75 events across the country to steward and raise awareness for public lands. From repairing local trails to beautifying parks to community celebrations, REI is inviting members of all ages and abilities to join in the effort.
