The North Face (TNF) has opened the application process for its Covid-19 Explore Fund. With the new fund worth €1 million, the outdoor brand wants to provide critical financial support to people and organizations that make adventure possible, such as mountain guides and climbing coaches, or urban climbing gyms and ski schools. The fund is open to registered companies and charities in the UK, Germany, France and Italy and aims to ensure that they can continue to bring people and adventure together despite the pandemic and its economic impact. TNF works closely with national and local officials to ensure that the fund’s resources go where the need is greatest – now and after the crisis. Applications can be submitted through the TNF website until May 22.
