“If we are to benefit from the use of our natural resources, we must be willing to act to preserve them.”orvis.com
With a specialty in fly-fishing and wingshooting gear, Orvis sells men’s and women’s sportswear, technical apparel, gifts, home furnishings, and dog products.
Orvis aims to be the trusted source for all who want to explore the great outdoors. The company donates 5% of pre-tax profits every year to efforts that protect nature, support the communities in which it works, and advance canine health and well-being. Those donations are made through a combination of customer matching grant programs, discretionary grant programs, and select community donations.
Orvis draws on more than a century as a hunter’s and fisherman’s go-to resource for gear and information. In addition to its retail business, the company also provides a network of schools, trainers and guides to help customers get out and explore nature. Orvis’s dog-loving culture drove it to develop and maintain an online guide for dog lovers on canine nutrition, safety, training, travel tips, and recommended products. In 2017, the company directed its grants to the Everglades Foundation, Clark Fork Coalition, and, for the sixth year in a row, the Petfinder Coalition.
