When our founder had an idea for an innovative product that got people outdoors, he acted on it. This outdoor-enabling spirit lives on in L.L.Bean’s commitment to community service, sustainable materials, environmental stewardship, and the well-being of our employees. In 2019, we contributed over $3 million to organizations that share our belief in the profound impact time outside can have on every human being.

Community

When we join forces outdoors with partners like the Trust for Public Land, National Park Foundation, Nature Conservancy and Appalachian Mountain Club, the sky’s the limit. In fact, we’ve committed over $16 million in the past decade to protect the outdoors and make it more accessible to everyone.
