Each month, OGE works to raise money for a different local outdoor-focused nonprofit via our Ground Up program. When you check out at our brick-and-mortar store, you have the opportunity to round your purchase up by 25 cents — then your change gets donated to that month's nonprofit partner. Cumulatively, this raises hundreds of dollars for each beneficiary! Your small donations go a long way to support the great work they do!
Apply For Your Organization
We seek to support local Vermont organizations that are focused on lowering barriers to outdoor recreation and/or increasing opportunities to spend time in nature. If your organization fits this bill, then apply today and we will get back to you soon!
