Giving Back

Kurgo Foundation

 

Kurgo has recently revamped our charitable arm by looking for a new way to give back and affect change. An internal team of volunteers is excited to roll-out the new Kurgo Foundation Fund, a program to support non-profit organizations that work to promote safety, exercise and create greater connections between people and their dogs. The foundation will continue to provide both financial and product support helping dogs and animals in challenging environments or suffering from natural disasters

Originally established by Kurgo’s founders in 2010, the Foundation has revised how support is allocated to outside organizations. An internal team of volunteers from Kurgo will select deserving non-profit organizations to receive monetary and product donations through the Foundation. Selection criteria will be based on a set of parameters that align with Kurgo’s corporate values; encouraging people to get outside and be active with their dogs, promoting canine welfare and safety.

Kurgo is seeking small non-profits where the company’s grant money can help affect change and make a difference. In its first year, grant award amounts will be between $1,000 – $10,000 and will be presented to recipients in the second quarter of 2019. Grants will be awarded during two rounds, in Q2 and Q4.

We know that our community loves to pursue adventures with their dogs outside and we want to help more dogs with their people to Go Together, wherever that adventure is heading. The Kurgo Foundation has renewed its mission to support the value of companionship between people and our dogs and looks forward to developing positive partnerships for our dog-loving community.

Applications must be received by April 15th for this year’s first-round of granting cycles.
