Sausalito, CA —  NatureBridge is proud to announce receipt of a generous donation from Osprey as part of its 2020 Pro Deal Donation program. The donation will support our environmental education programming. Osprey, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative carry solutions, selected NatureBridge as a beneficiary of the 2020 program, along with two other organizations, Navajo YES and Families in Nature.

"We are so inspired by the support of our 2020 Pro Deal Donation program and the financial resources that it generated for our nonprofit partners,” said Vince Mazzuca, Osprey’s director of marketing. “At Osprey, we believe we have a duty to take care of the people, places and things we touch and we are committed to leave our world better than we found it. We hope Osprey’s partnerships with nonprofits serve to educate and inspire our customers to become more involved in advocacy and volunteerism.”

For nearly two decades, Osprey’s Pro Deal Program has generated a 1% per transaction donation to select and diverse non-profit organizations. With each pro deal purchase, customers are able to select the nonprofit of their choice from Osprey’s annual partner list. This is the first time that NatureBridge has participated in the program.
