Partner In Adventure Grant, From AAC and TINCUP Whiskey, Now Accepting Applications
Partner In Adventure Grants now open, empowering safe and inclusive access to outdoor recreation and helping the guiding community in a challenging year.
TINCUP Mountain Whiskey and the American Alpine Club (AAC) are pleased to announce a new program with the launch of the Partner In Adventure Grant. The grant, which is open to duos 21+ of all experience levels, seeks to fund outdoor educational experiences and support the local guides and organizations that provide these resources. The grant is an extension of TINCUP’sPartner In Adventure campaign, which celebrates the powerful bonds that are forged when people come together in pursuit of true adventure. Together with the AAC, TINCUP looks to inspire new outdoor experiences and empower more people to enjoy them – safely.
The Partner In Adventure Grant will award duos up to $1,000 to support outdoor educational experiences, fostering safe recreation as individuals begin or advance their outdoor experience. While experienced climbers and outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged to apply, the grant also aims to empower newcomers hoping to increase their skill set.
The grant program is part of a broader partnership between TINCUP and the AAC, with TINCUP serving as the club’s Official Whiskey Sponsor. TINCUP will also support the AAC’s upcoming Craggin’ Classic event and the organization’s efforts to address critical issues facing climbers and the outdoor community. The Craggin’ Classic, a weeklong climbing festival, will be held virtually Oct. 19-25, 2020. The digital event will offer educational programming, in-depth panel discussions, slideshows, and more –including an early screening of TINCUP ambassadors Renan Ozturk and Taylor Rees’s new film, “TheGhosts Above.”
The Partner In Adventure Grant application period runs from Sept. 22 to Oct. 29, 2020. A team of AAC representatives will review applications and will notify recipients during the week of Nov. 16, 2020. For a list of full rules and regulations, and to apply visit www.partnerinadventure.com.
