At KEEN, we're committed to creating strong communities and protecting the places we play. The KEEN Effect program awards grants to grassroots organizations across the world working to grow the next generation of environmental stewards. 

By selecting programs that bring diverse audiences of children outside for adventurous recreation, environmental stewardship, and nature-based education, the KEEN Effect Youth program is actively building a future full of formative experiences that build lasting outdoor values defined during childhood.

We are discovering and funding the best grassroots organizations developing youth (age 18 or under) in the outdoors worldwide. Our grantees are growing environmental literacy in youth by breaking down the silos of outdoor activities, embracing creativity and ingenuity in their programming, and addressing urgent conservation needs while diversifying the demographic imbalances of today's outdoor participant (such as identities like race, sex, gender, & ability).

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Applicable projects are conducted by 501(c)3 non-profits (or local equivalent) that inspire youth outdoor participation, engage diverse audiences, are innovative and creative in their approach, and are willing to collaboratively share the story of their work through KEEN.


  • We do not fund research projects, conferences, or events.
