Partners must be tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations as defined under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. In order to maintain focus and achieve greater impact of corporate giving, Columbia Sportswear will not provide charitable support for the following:
- Political organizations/persons
- Religious organizations for religious purposes
- Organizations that discriminate against race, color, religion, national origin, age, marital status, handicaps, and sexual preference
- Third party distributors
