Share Winter works closely with carefully selected grantees to build efficient, effective, sustainable winter sports programs and pipelines to ongoing winter sports participation. Through our partnerships, we strive to make winter sports accessible to a broader, more diverse community, and share winter with 100,000 youth by 2028.
Diversity, inclusion, and community involvement are all hallmarks of a strong partner program and we utilize our collective resources to create a more diverse, more inclusive, and more welcoming winter sports community. Our goal is to utilize our grants to grow winter sports participation and catalyze growth and inclusiveness in the winter sports community.
Share Winter is not a traditional funder. We don’t simply write checks and collect year end reports. Share Winter typically funds programs for 3-5 years, to help facilitate growth and increase both efficiency and efficacy. We engage in ongoing program monitoring, analysis, thought leadership and strategic support. We share and help implement best practices and industry insights. Share Winter works together with our grantees to provide the best on and off snow experiences for their youth.
Share Winter funds a variety of programs, each with their own approaches and unique challenges. Our grantees operate in urban and rural areas, and range from public schools, to US Ski and Snowboard Clubs, to non-profit ski areas and departments of recreation. We fund programs nationally and work to connect all of our programs to a national network of winter sports advocates.
By helping to assess and overcome a variety of barriers to skiing/snowboarding and investing in a variety of innovative solutions, we are uniquely able to offer insight and guidance regarding issues in skiing and snowboarding participation. We share our collective knowledge with our grantees and with the winter sports industry at large.
