Live Your Dream Grant Applications Open Through February 28!
The Live Your Dream Grant supports the every-day adventurers who have a personally ambitious climbing goal, a desire to take their abilities to the next level, and want to share the power of exploration with their communities.
The Live Your Dream grant, powered by The North Face (TNF), was founded on the belief that our definitions of exploration and our goals are unique to each of us. Meaningful exploration isn’t limited to the highest peaks in the farthest reaches of the world. Your local gym, crag, and backyard mountains are equally important resources to help stoke inspiration for adventure. When we search out new experiences, overcome obstacles, and connect with each other, through exploration, we change ourselves.

This grant supports the every-day adventurers who harness this mindset for their own exploration. We are looking for individuals who have a personally ambitious climbing goal, a desire to take their abilities to the next level, and want to share the power of exploration with their communities.
Open to all ages, all experience levels, and all climbing disciplines—from bouldering to big walls, alpinism to ski mountaineering, peak bagging to bolt clipping, and everything in between—we encourage you to dream big, let curiosity lead you, and apply.
Application period: January 15th through February 28th
Live Your Dream grant awards vary depending upon the prospective project and budget, but typically fall within the $200 to $1,000 range. Recipients will be announced in the month of May.
