In 2013, Outsiders Ball provided funding to projects across the country that inspired a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts. With generous support from the outdoor industry, these grassroots projects are connecting nearly 15,000 people with outdoor activities. A huge thanks to the brands, businesses and individual attendees that made this great work possible. This year, we're launching the Outsiders Ball Project Fund! The fund is to ensure retailer-recommended projects like these are supported now and into the future. To participate, retailers should encourage local nonprofit organizations to apply at outdoorfoundation.org.
