Community Giving - Bogs

At Bogs, we live to get outside. And we think every child should have the opportunity to do so too. The outdoors provide the perfect classroom to learn, play, and enjoy being a kid.

For every purchase on we will donate 2% to outdoor education initiatives. Our goal is to provide scholarships and grants to remove financial barriers so all kids can grow and learn in the outdoors.

Amicus Adventure Sailing

Our boots don’t just help educators on land but also on sea. Sea Change is a three-year sailing project to help bring climate change awareness, education and solutions to communities along the shores of Lake Superior. This international crew of college students are circumnavigating Lake Superior and engaging communities along the way.

Chicago Botanic Gardens - Youth Farm

Stemming from our roots we have always been passionate about helping people grow and cultivate their own food. Green Youth Farm promotes urban farming for youth in the Chicago area. These students not only learn sustainable agriculture, but also job preparedness, financial literacy, healthy nutrition, and a deeper understanding of our global food system. We believe in working harder and playing longer so we are happy to support these students as they work hard for their communities.

Portland Children’s Museum

We teamed up with Portland Children’s Museum to keep the awe and wonder of outdoor exploration accessible to younger generations.The Museum’s newest permanent exhibit, Outdoor Adventure, is an intentional, education-based, ADA-accessible outdoor space giving kids the chance to reconnect with nature. The 1.3 acre space is open rain or shine, and showers and puddles won’t be an issue thanks to a donation of BOGS Classic boots.

Mother Earth School

As a leader in outdoor education, the Mother Earth School enlivens education through deep nature connection with children, families and educators to inspire social and ecological renewal. Bogs has aligned with Mother Earth School to help further this mission.

Outdoor Nature School

Bogs recently put boots on the active feet of CedarSong Nature school students. The mission of CedarSong Nature School is to provide opportunities to experience nature directly. Its goal is to create a connection to the natural world and increase awareness, fostering empathy for the earth from a young age.

Urban Ecology Center

The Urban Ecology Center fosters ecological understanding as inspiration for change, neighborhood by neighborhood. By being well prepared in all weather the Urban Ecology Center is able to provide outdoor science education for urban youth. This includes the protection and use public natural areas, making them safe, accessible and vibrant. They also help preserve and enhance these natural areas and their surrounding waters.

Urban Nature Partners PDX

Urban Nature Partners PDX was founded to bridge the gaps between Portland, Oregon's excellent system of urban green spaces, and youth in underserved neighborhoods who seldom get to benefit from them because they lack basic outdoor gear and adults with available time and knowledge. As part of this we have helped Urban Natures PDX provide their students with the proper outdoor footwear.
