1% For the Planet
is a global network of businesses, individuals, and nonprofits working to tackle our planet's most pressing environmental issues. As a member, we give 1% of all sales back to environmental non-profits and get our hands dirty regularly volunteering with organizations to restore trails, clean up our coastline and plant trees. We’re an active member in our local 1% for the Planet community and organize film festivals, environmental discussion panels and public outreach events to raise funds and awareness for our nonprofit partners.
The Conservation Alliance
partners with grassroots environmental organizations to protect the wild places we all love. We joined The Conservation Alliance in 2006, making us a proud member for over a decade. Each year we participate in The Conservation Alliance’s Backyard Collective, a day of local environmental activism, and every Toad gets to vote on grant nominations each year to determine which conservation projects will receive funding.
The Adventure Travel Conservation Fund
(ATCF) directly funds local projects engaged in the conservation of unique natural and cultural resources of adventure travel destinations. We support the ATCF in preserving adventure travel experiences for future generations through sustainable and eco-tourism. We’re an active member of the ATCF and our CEO, Gordon Seabury, sits on the board of directors.
Search for Adventure
We believe that everyone should have access to out-of-the-box, try-something-new, life-changing travel experiences. In 2004, we partnered with Search, Inc. (providers of high-quality services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities) to cofound Search for Adventure (SFA), a unique travel program to facilitate vacations for adults with disabilities. SFA has taken more than 700 people on 104 trips that have included hiking the historic Appalachian Trail, experiencing the majesty of the Grand Canyon, and riding the range at a Colorado dude ranch. Each year, we partner with accessible travel company Wilderness Inquiry to get adults with disabilities out on the water via the Canoemobile. In many cases, these experiences are the first outdoor opportunities people with disabilities have had.
is a national non-profit dedicated to LGBTQ+ youth leadership. They offer accredited summer camps, family camps, mentorship programs, meet-up groups, and year-round leadership programming – each with a focus on helping LGBTQ+ youth find what they need most to thrive: their people, their place and their passion. We recently launched a partnership that will include getting Team Toad out to volunteer with Brave Trails in person.
Empowering all people to live their fullest lives is core to who we are as a brand, and we believe in reproductive justice for all. On the fourth Friday of every month, we donate 20% of online sales to Planned Parenthood – and we do the same at our flagship Toad&Co store in Freeport, Maine.
SUPPORTING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES
We know the importance of supporting our community, which is why we partner with local non-profits at each of our retail locations and at our Headquarters to make sure we are volunteering our time and giving back to the community that gives us so much. Here are some of the local non-profits we support.
