The Pure Outdoor Foundation

We're a branch of Pure Outdoor built to inspire and educate about the environment.

 

By stepping out into the Peak District National Park, it’s possible to experience our precious environment up close. Our purpose is to help protect the environment by enabling people to experience the natural world, leaving them caring about where they’ve been and wanting to take steps to protect it.

 

Through the Pure Outdoor Pledge we provide the value fo 5% of Pure Outdoor sales through pro bono services. A grant application system is available on The Pure Outdoor Foundation platform.

The amount of grant awarded will depend on the application criteria and judged by the trustee working group, who will form a criteria for judging applications and issuing grants.


Specific projects, reviewed annually, are the main focus of any fundraising activities. All fundraising activities are targeted to any of the projects at any given time. All projects will link back to the mission statement of the group. 

 

Our Purpose:

 

"To promote, for the benefit of the public, the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment throughout the UK by enabling people of all backgrounds to learn about the natural world."
