Yes, we want men to take care of themselves, but we also want them to join us in taking care of the planet and each other. There’s no going alone when it comes to valuable, long-lasting change.

We work with organizations who inspire us. Hopefully, our projects and partnerships will inspire you, too.

National Forest Foundation

We have partnered with the National Forest Foundation to ensure our nation’s forests stay healthy and vibrant for generations to come.

National forest lands are the foundation of America’s outdoor recreation heritage and sustain our way of life. They provide water to millions of Americans in thousands of communities, clean our air, store carbon, and provide timber, minerals, and other resources for industry and communities.

The NFF’s mission inspired us to continue our $50,000 commitment in 2024. Our donation will focus on three areas of support:

  • Plant 25,000 trees in the Ouchita National Forest
  • Restore seven acres of forest in the Tahoe National Forest in California
  • Contribute to restoring and building new cabins for the public to stay in across National Forests in Alaska

National Forest Foundation By The Numbers


Big City Mountaineers’ programs focus on providing access to the outdoors for youth from communities that have historically lacked equitable access to nature.

By providing free, fully outfitted, and professionally led outdoor and backcountry trips, we’re able to give students ages 8 to 18 the opportunity to connect with nature and reconnect with their strengths, skills, and resilience.

In 2024, Every Man Jack is contributing $25,000 for the second year towards fully funding three youth groups through day hikes, backpacking, and back country exploring. 

Team EMJ will also be volunteering at the BCM Warehouse in Richmond, CA to pack supplies, organize gear, and provide support for these trips. Let’s go!

Big City Mountaineers: Big Impact


Every Man Jack was born at the base of Mt. Tamalpais - Mt Tam for short - in Marin County, CA, the epicenter of clean, active, and outdoor-focused lifestyles. One Tam works to ensure the health of the mountain, from rare native plant species to trail maintenance. 

With its sweeping views, miles of trails, and ancient forests, Mt. Tamalpais is a beloved local treasure. But the mountain also faces many challenges such as invasive weeds, forest diseases, and the effects of climate change. 

One Tam’s science and restoration work help protect the mountain’s long-term health and their volunteer programs engage people of all ages in caring for its treasured resources. 

We’re proud to support One Tam with $10,000 in 2024 to:

  • 1.5 miles of realigned trail at Roy’s Redwoods Preserve to restore the floodplain and delicate vegetation, plus increase accessibility for people of all abilities, in this beloved old growth redwood grove. 

  • Support the Marin Regional Forest Health Strategy, which provides a roadmap for stewarding the county’s 180,000 acres of forests and woodlands.
