Eddie Bauer Donates $10,000 to Conservation Alliance Grantees

Conservation Alliance member company Eddie Bauer decided to invest an additional $10,000 in conservation, above and beyond their annual membership contribution. Because our grantees have a history of success, Eddie Bauer chose to contribute $5,000 to two conservation projects previously funded by the Alliance; American Whitewater’s Wild Olympics Campaign and Forterra’s Yakima River Scenic Byway Project.
Eddie Bauer is a heritage brand that opened its first store in Seattle, Washington in 1920. The foundation of the business was built around Mr. Eddie Bauer’s passion for innovation, quality, and appreciation of the outdoors.  As our population grows and the amount of public land available for conservation decreases, it’s no surprise that member companies like Eddie Bauer are prioritizing conservation in their giving programs.
Over 190 outdoor businesses demonstrate their commitment to conservation by contributing annual membership dues to our central grant fund. 100% of their membership dues are passed on to the grassroots organizations working to protect wild places. We plan to distribute $1.65 million in 2015, and look forward to celebrating many conservation victories along the way.
