Since 1976, REI and The REI Foundation have invested more than $77 million in organizations across the country that share our goal of creating, improving and sustaining access to inspiring outdoor places. Our co-op model means that as we grow, so does our ability to support these partners and places.
REI is in a unique position to support and convene organizations on the front lines of this country's most important outdoor issues. We advocate for a range of national, state and local legislative measures aimed at sustaining and increasing recreational opportunities that meet the needs of a changing population. We continue to strengthen our existing advocacy partnerships and build new ones in allied fields, such as public health, transportation and public land protection. Our objective, now and in the future, is to forge meaningful connections that transform the recreational landscape for the better.
