evo's purpose is to make life better by building community and igniting the adventurous spirit that lives within us all.

We believe all young people deserve the opportunity to discover their passions and achieve their full potential. We invest in programs and partnerships that help kids build positive skills and mindsets in the communities where we live, work and play.

Deep Investment:

As evo grows, so does our investment in our community. We've been building relationships with outdoor youth organizations to deepen their impact. Some recent celebrations include a joint grant-making project with Patagonia, which funded $10,000 each to Project Voyce in Denver, OPAL's Youth Environmental Justice Alliance in Portland and Got Green's Young Leaders Initiative in Seattle.  We are continuing to seek opportunities to move the needle for our key partners. 

Employee Programs:

For our employees we offer Volunteer Paid Time Off (VPTO), giving each employee an opportunity to help support the causes they are passionate about. We highlight organizations internally to open up doors to volunteer and offer networking opportunities for employees to easily opt in. We also provide an employee matching fund and will match employee donations up to $250 per year to the organizations of their choice. You can see highlights from volunteer and employee events below.

Community Engagement:

For our customers, we offer the opportunity to give back in the shopping cart, benefitting some of our favorite organizations. Customers local to the Northwest have access to our store as a venue for special shopping nights. You can organize a midweek shopping night for your special cause and get 10% off for the customers and 5% back to your organization. Contact us to schedule an in-store event. If you are looking for a donation for your upcoming event or fundraising drive please understand that we get hundreds of requests weekly and would love to help out everyone, but it is not always possible. Fill out an online donation request form.

While we respect all organizations and individuals who are doing great work to give back, in order to make the biggest impact, our focus is to reduce barriers to success of young people in need and we are especially interested in organizations that use the outdoors as a tool for development. For this reason we are most apt to respond to inquiries that align with our chosen cause.

Our products stand by our mission. evo donates 2% of evo-branded product sales to youth-serving organizations in our community. Every child deserves a chance to achieve their potential. Together, we can equip young people facing the greatest need with the skills and support to thrive.
