The Conservation Alliance is an organization of outdoor businesses whose collective contributions support grassroots environmental organizations and their efforts to protect wild places for their habitat and recreational values. Members pay dues into a central fund and twice a year vote on which organizations should get funded. Because each member company may submit one ballot, each member has an equal say in the grant decisions. One hundred percent of dues go into the Conservation Alliance Grant Fund.

Freedom to Roam brings together the best in business, government and conservation to raise awareness and commitment for wildlife corridors and connected landscapes. Corridors are the single solution that will ensure wildlife can move, migrate, and adapt despite the challenges of habitat fragmentation and a changing climate. By developing broad and deep awareness about connectivity, creating a community of citizens and groups committed to corridors, and ensuring the commitment of the corporate sector, the Freedom to Roam Coalition changes the game for wildlife conservation, giving animals the freedom to roam through this century and beyond.
