With every Superfeet purchase you are helping support important, impactful work that contributes to creating a world where all people thrive.
We recently made some updates to the Superfeet corporate giving program to put a spotlight on diversity and inclusion and protecting the planet, while retaining our long-term commitment to support basic, essential needs.
Superfeet is pleased to announce two new partnerships for our 1% giving program:
Running Industry Diversity Coalition (RIDC)
Superfeet is proud to support and be part of the RIDC vision of a running industry committed to racial justice, where the BIPOC individuals are welcome, valued and amplified. Website: www.runningdiversity.com.
Protect our Winters (POW)
As a brand partner of Protect our Winters, Superfeet funding joins POW’s community of outdoor professionals, creatives, and influencers working together to advance non-partisan policies that help fight climate change. Website: protectourwinters.org.
In addition to POW and RIDC, three long-term Superfeet non-profit partners continue to be the beneficiaires of Superfeet giving dollars:
Superfeet is a member company of this outdoor industry organization that helps to protect wild places for their habitat and recreation values. Superfeet funds will go directly to support annual grants awarded to conservation projects across North America. Website: conservationalliance.com.
Fisher House Foundation
This year’s Superfeet contribution will go directly to support the Fisher House Foundation Hero Miles Program, providing round-trip airline tickets to wounded, injured and ill service members and their families who are undergoing treatment at military or VA medical centers. Website: fisherhouse.org.
Our Hearts to Your Soles
Superfeet is a long-time supporter of Our Hearts to Your Soles, a series of annual nationwide events that provide people experiencing homelessness with new shoes, socks, and essential foot care. Superfeet provides financial and volunteer support for the Bellingham-based annual event. Website: heartstosoles.com.
