The focus of Bear Creek’s Giving Back Program is to foster a love of the outdoors and support healthy living.
Preference will be given to programs/organizations that meet the following criteria:
- Are located in the communities we work in
- Are non-profit
- Are focused on the outdoors and healthy living
- Benefit the greatest number of people for the longest period of time
- Have measurable results
Check out examples of projects we’ve supported in the past.
Applications to Bear Creek’s Giving Back Program are accepted two times per year. Deadlines for application:
- April 15
- October 15
Due to a high volume of applications, only those receiving our assistance will be contacted.
We aim to contact successful applicants within 6 weeks of receiving applications. Successful applicants will receive an email from Bear Creek outlining the details of our support.
More than one application from the same organization for different projects are allowed. Successful organizations are also allowed to submit applications for different projects for different Giving Back deadline.
For Successful Applicants
Once projects are complete, all successful applicants must submit to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- a minimum of five, high-resolution photos
- a minimum one-page project report
The report should include how the Bear Creek donation was used, how it benefited your organization and project, and any other value, benefits or impacts.
