Because nature humanizes us.

Worthy Work

We believe in investing in EDUCATIONAL PATHWAYS across the apparel, outdoor and skilled trades industries to BUILD A PIPELINE OF NEXT-GEN, INCLUSIVE LEADERS who can reach their full potential.

Because work dignifies us.

Free to Be

We believe in fostering CREATIVITY AND SELF-EXPRESSION to ensure that everyone has opportunities and support to follow their passions and dreams.

Disaster Relief

VF Corporation and The VF Foundation provide coordinated SUPPORT FOR DISASTER AND HUMANITARIAN RELIEF AND RECOVERY EFFORTS AROUND THE WORLD. This includes monetary grants and product donations to organizations leading relief efforts, as well as employee donation matching and volunteer efforts.

Because helping others is a responsibility that we all share.

Apply for a Grant

Funding is considered for programmatic work that takes place in the communities where VF Corporation and our family of brands operate.

The grant selection process is highly competitive given the number of requests we receive from across the globe. The strongest applications are for programming centered on advancing diversity, equity and inclusion, and in alignment with one or more of our priorities – Outside Matters, Worthy Work, and Free to Be.
