The Cairn Project

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

If you're as passionate about our cause as we are, it'd be amazing if you created a fundraiser on GoFundMe Charity to raise money for our Charity. GoFundMe Charity makes it super easy and fun, and your support is invaluable to our mission. Consider giving up your next birthday by asking for donations instead of gifts. Or run a marathon and ask your friends to sponsor you. We love getting donations but there's nothing better than when you go a step further and help us raise money from your network of friends. Lots of little donations really do add up. The power of the crowd is real. Please create a fundraiser and help us make a real-life difference for this incredibly important cause.

To expand outdoor education for girls around the country

What is The Cairn Project?

For girls, The Cairn Project expands outdoor access by supporting community-based wilderness and outdoor education groups around the country through a small grants program. For women, we’re bringing together a community that is inspired to catalyze outdoor passion into a force for good, share learning and stories, and raise the profile of women and girls in outdoor adventure.

Let’s do this - Get Out, Give Back!

It’s easy! Turn a race, outdoor expedition, or special event on the horizon into something that activates your network to support organizations getting more girls outside. Pass on the privilege of outdoor adventure to our rising generation!

More girls learning outside

Our small grants support organizations around the country - many of which are small, community groups with mostly volunteer staff - who are getting young women outside backpacking, paddling, surfing, biking, and so much more! Our grants run the gamut from increasing scholarship funds for well-established programs, to helping smaller, newer groups take their impact to the next level, and everything in between.
