What We Do
We create innovative outdoor products and experiences that fund sustainable poverty alleviation, move people to do good, and inspire adventure.
Cotopaxi funds solutions that address the most persistent needs of those living in extreme poverty. Giving is core to our model. As a Delaware Public Benefit Corporation, Cotopaxi has made a commitment to creating positive social impact. We focus our efforts on global poverty alleviation & give targeted grants to advance health, education, and livelihoods initiatives around the world.
Our grantmaking represents our belief in the power of holistic development. We focus on three pillars which we believe are inextricably linked and crucial to creating a sustainable pathway out of poverty. Within each pillar, we have identified specific poverty indicators against which we track our outcomes and success.
Reduce preventable disease & under-five mortality rates
Improve primary literacy rates & access to quality education
Create opportunity for entrepreneurial training & job skills development
