Causes We Love

We want to get you out on the trail and into the great outdoors, which is why it’s so important that we do our part to protect our planet and make the world you’re exploring a better place.

We partner with non-profits, alliances, and charitable organizations that share our beliefs: to be kind, be adventurous, and to leave it better than we found it.

We’re excited to show you who we’ve partnered with and what we’ve been working on.


BCM was founded in the summer of 1989, when American Hiking Society founder Jim Kern spent a week in the Montana backcountry with his son and his son's friend.

Kern realized that every kid deserved the chance to explore the wilderness and experience the personal growth that only comes through physical challenges in the backcountry. Since then, BCM has hosted more than 9,000 under-resourced kids, conducted nearly 800 expeditions, organized over 5,000 volunteers, and provided nearly 42,000 nights under the stars for kids that would not have had the opportunity without BCM.

Every season, Gregory donates packs for BCM trips and expeditions—insuring that the kids have what they need to get down the trail. “It’s a perfect partnership,” Doug Sandok, Corporate Relations Director at BCM, says. “The Gregory team believes in getting kids into the outdoors and finding fun and enjoyment in the outdoors. Together we prove that the wilderness of the world is a resource for everyone to have access to. It’s a powerful, inspirational place.


If there is glue that keeps the outdoor industry together in it’s mission to protect the places we love, it’s the Conservation Alliance.

The Conservation Alliance pools annual membership dues from more than 200 companies and brands like us to support nonprofit organizations working to protect wilderness and waterways for their recreational and habitat values.

Since its creation in 1989, the Alliance has contributed more than $20 million to grassroots conservation efforts throughout North America and, in turn, has saved 51 million acres of wilderness; protected 3,102 miles of rivers; stopped or removed 30 dams; designated five marine reserves; and purchased 13 climbing areas. That’s a lot of nature for all of us to see, use, and love.
