Everyone’s favorite outdoor co-op recently opened its latest brick-and-mortar store in Beaverton, Oregon, with a three-day celebration to mark the occasion. At a staggering 39,000 square feet, the new Beaverton location became the largest REI store in the country when it opened its doors. 

With plenty of room to roam and brands to explore, Team Sawyer was overwhelmed by the community's turnout and the enthusiasm of staff, families, and friends who visited our booth. But the excitement doesn’t stop there; Sawyer celebrated with a $5,000 donation to the REI Cooperative Action Fund, whose mission is to create a more equitable outdoors for everyone. 

About the REI Cooperative Action Fund 

The REI Cooperative Action Fund is a community-supported public charity that directly supports organizations promoting justice, equity and belonging in the outdoors to strengthen the health and well-being of people and communities.

Time outside and our connection to nature is fundamental for the social, cultural, economic, and individual health and well-being of all people. But today, millions of Americans lack access to the outdoors, and many don't feel a sense of safety or belonging outside. 

We believe cooperative action leads to cooperative change.

The REI Cooperative Action Fund exists to provide support for nonprofit organizations across the country doing the essential work to create a more equitable outdoors for everyone.  

Glorious Grantees 

Here at Sawyer, we’re proud to support a wide range of organizations, from trail management nonprofits to clean water projects around the world. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to learn that many of our partners are also grantees of the REI Cooperative Action Fund.

"Compact, easy to use lifesaver. There's really not anything to dislike about this water filter. It's small enough and light enough to just be thrown in my pack before heading out, whether I'll be hiking, fishing, camping, or just swimming at a lake.
