The VF Foundation on Tuesday announced $8.3 million in 2022 grants to 60 organizations around the world, with nearly $2,635,000 going toward creating more inclusive and accessible outdoor spaces, $2,682,500 toward women's empowerment and community development, $1,642,000 toward sustainable innovation, and scholarships and mentorship programs to ensure more diverse representation in the apparel, footwear, and outdoor industries, per a press release.

Among the recipients: Trust for Public Land, which will use the funds to develop new green schoolyards on nature-deprived tribal lands; the University of Denver, which will create the Leadership in Outdoor Recreation Industry Program; the Urban Foxes Project to engage girls in positive activities through skateboarding, climbing, and snow sports; and the Trust for Women in Global Value Chains, which will support women-led, women-serving feminist movements in Vietnam and Cambodia.
