Global Climbing Initiative launches worldwide Community Grants programme to develop climbing in all communities across the globe (application deadline: 29th February 2024)

The Global Climbing Initiative, a Colorado, United States-based,  non-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to the sustainable and equitable growth of climbing worldwide, has announced the second round of its Community Grants program to power climbing communities’ visions for the growth of climbing around the world.

Grants provide funding for a range of initiatives, from one-time events, trainings, and projects to ongoing programs that create sustainable change.

The Global Climbing Initiative welcomes applications from climbing organisations who share its vision of advancing global climbing and addressing inequities and systemic challenges in the climbing world.  The aim of the programme is to empower climbing communities to bring their unique ideas to life.

There are two application rounds during 2024:

1. 1st – Thursday 29th February for projects taking place between April and September 2024, and
2. 1st August 1- Saturday 31st August for projects taking place between October 2024 and March 2025.

Climbing is in a stage of unprecedented expansion, and it has massive potential to create positive economic, social, and environmental change.
