Patagonia Grant

Early in 2019, Patagonia awarded $23,000 to the Samuel Lawrence Foundation to support its San Onofre and Beyond campaign. Nearly a quarter of the grant came from the clothing company’s store in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California.

The collaboration aims to educate the public, promote action by public officials, build a coalition of leaders, and move nuclear waste off of the beach.

When announcing the grant award, a Patagonia official noted the company’s mission statement – “We’re in business to save our home planet” — and thanked the Foundation for its “important work.”

Thanks so much, Patagonia!
