For the last 20 years, the Salt Lake City Utah community has welcomed the outdoor industry as we conduct our business in and around the OutdoorRetailer winter and summer markets. 

As a way to continue investing in the state of Utah, public lands and outdoor recreation, the Outdoor Foundation and Outdoor Industry Association would like to invite Utah non-profits and schools to submit a youth/parks project that is in need of funding to the Utah Parks4Kids initiative.

Leveraging crowdfunding technology, this initiative and its online platform are designed to generate support for programs that give young people park experiences -- connecting donors with local projects in need of funding. We will actively be fundraising for this effort throughout the summer and during the July 26-29th Summer Outdoor Retailer Show.
