The L.L.Bean Outdoor Access Fund seeks to empower people to experience the shared joy of the outdoors by funding organizations that increase public access to nature and recreational opportunities, while also promoting environmental stewardship. As of 2018, L.L.Bean has already contributed $2.8 million with more funds being allocated for the future.


“L.L.Bean is committed to supporting public access to the outdoors, not just because that is our business, but because that is who we are.”

Stephen Smith, President and CEO
