The Conservation Alliance was founded in 1989 by REI, Patagonia, The North Face, and Kelty, and now consists of hundreds of member organizations and individual donors. The Alliance disburses member dues and individual donations to grassroots environmental organizations following a rigorous grant proposal review process that ensures money is directed to outcome-based initiatives. The Alliance has helped save more than 73 million acres of wildlands, protect 3,575 miles of rivers, stop or remove 35 dams, designate five marine reserves, and purchased 17 climbing areas.

Why We Love

The Conservation Alliance

Next time you find yourself in seemingly untouched wilderness and wondering how it has managed to avoid the one-way road of development for housing, strip malls and chain restaurants, let your next thought be the Conservation Alliance. Between direct acquisition of premiere wilderness or the millions of dollars of grant funding they've provided to other grassroots organizations preserving wild places, the reach of the Conservation Alliance is incredible and unparalleled. Atmos is proud to be a Conservation Alliance member. - Pete

Our story

As we watched the climate crisis continue to unfold over the last couple decades we’ve felt more and more like the people running the world were going through life with their eyes closed—pretending nothing was happening. We knew the solutions existed but we couldn’t understand why they weren’t being adopted. That’s why we decided to start Atmos, a new model for climate-positive banking. Atmos is our way of using the most powerful tool in capitalism to solve the biggest challenge in human history: climate change. Join us, help turbocharge the transition to the clean economy, and a healthy, resilient planet.

—Ravi and Pete, Co-Founders
