About the Mountain Dew Outdoor Grants Program: MTN DEW® is awarding forty, $5,000 grants ($200K) to nonprofits for initiatives that support outdoor conservation and recreation as part of the MTN DEW Outdoor Grants program. Whether through wildlife conservation, environmental preservation or outdoor recreation, all chosen nonprofits share a common goal of enhancing and protecting the great outdoors for the continuing benefit of everyone. MTN DEW’s long-term goal is to assist these Heartland-based organizations in commemorating the lands we love and promoting safe outdoor participation for years to come.

The grants are awarded to organizations that “best demonstrate their local community impact to preserving and protecting the outdoors through three judging categories: authenticity and creativity, local community impact, and influence on outdoor conservation or participation.” The program kicked off in 2020 and encouraged eligible nonprofits to share their focus on outdoor experience, regional impact on outdoor conservation and celebration of outdoor lifestyle.
