At the end of 2019, Patagonia asked you to give the gift of giving—you showed up and donated more than they could have ever imagined. And then Patagonia matched you.

Now, thanks to you, more than $21,000,000 is being donated to local grassroots activists. The guys at Patagonia asked them what those dollars would become and here’s what they had to say.

Conservation Lands Foundation

“[These funds will] help make sure Conservation Lands Foundation has the capacity and resources to hold the line against the Trump administration’s aggressive campaign to weaken protections and reduce public input on dozens of iconic public lands that they want to hand over to oil and gas development.” –Brian Sybert, Executive Director

City Kids Wilderness Project
“As a small organization, this additional support is truly transformational and will allow us to focus on what we do best: providing high-impact outdoor adventure and leadership development programming for DC youth.” –Eloise Russo, Executive Director

Environmental Defense Center
“With this incredible support from Patagonia, the Environmental Defense Center will fight to prevent a tripling of onshore oil production in Santa Barbara County, to stop the Trump administration from expanding oil drilling and fracking off our coast, and to move forward with offshore renewable energy.” — Betsy Weber, Assistant Director

Native Fish Society
“The Patagonia match was a game changer for Native Fish Society. This was our largest year-end fundraiser–even before the match! Ending strong means we can start even stronger in our work in 2020 to revive abundant wild fish across the Pacific Northwest. Your support matters.” –Mark Sherwood, Executive Director
