Fox Factory Supports Responsible Recreation with Trail Trust Grants

Are you part of a non-profit organization dedicated to trail building and maintenance, responsible recreation, or increasing access to underrepresented groups in the outdoor space? If so, Fox Factory’s Trail Trust community investment program might be of interest to you.

Fox created Trail Trust to award grants to organizations helping to preserve outdoor places, to bring together diverse communities to build, maintain, and expand access to trails.

Focus areas of the Trail Trust include:

Trail Building and Maintenance: Supporting trail building and land maintenance for cycling and power sports.

Responsible Recreation: Promoting the safe and responsible use of trails/land by educating the public about minimizing the environmental impact of outdoor adventuring.

Expanding Access: Diversifying the population that participates in the cycling and power sports industries which have historically seen inadequate diverse representation.

As part of the launch, Fox has awarded approximately $500,000 in Trail Trust funding, including to several OHV organizations such as the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council, the Off-Road Business Association, Post Wildfire Off-highway Vehicle Recovery Alliance, and Tread Lightly.

“Our products are an integral part of outdoor adventuring—from mountain biking and motorcycling to off-roading and snowmobiling. With that comes the responsibility to promote the responsible use of land amongst outdoor enthusiasts and protect our shared playground. We also want to expand access to outdoor sports, acknowledging the importance of providing underrepresented groups with opportunities to participate in activities that have historically engaged a fairly homogenous population.” – Fox

Ashley Giordano completed a 48,800-kilometer overland journey from Canada to Argentina with her husband, Richard, in their well-loved but antiquated Toyota pickup. On the zig-zag route south, she hiked craggy peaks in the Andes, discovered diverse cultures in 15 different countries, and filled her tummy with spicy ceviche, Baja fish tacos, and Argentinian Malbec. You can usually find Ashley buried in a pile of travel books, poring over maps, or researching wild medicinal plants. Ashley is a co-founder of Women Overlanding the World and crew member of Expedition Overland. You’ll find this Canadian-born couple exploring a different continent in 2021, and sharing their trip every step of the way at Desk to Glory.
