Be good. Do good. Feel good.

The world has been very good to us. In turn, we want to be good to the world. That’s why we support charities that focus on education, environmental issues and conservation.

The organizations we support share our values and our commitment to improving the lives of people in the Santa Barbara community and beyond.

On this page, you’ll find organizations that Deckers Brands works with on a regular basis in North America. Each region also partners with local organizations in their countries. Our brands also have partnerships that reflect their unique passions. For information on brand partnerships, visit the UGG®, Teva®, Sanuk®, Hoka®, Ahnu® and websites.

 

We are accepting applications for 2016 donations. All donation requests for 2016 will be reviewed at the end of this year, and those accepted will be notified accordingly.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to support the many organizations in need.

We take our donations seriously and are constantly evaluating our list of charitable partners.

As a guideline, we donate to organizations that spend less than 10% on administrative costs. That way, we can be sure that every dollar we donate truly counts.

In addition, we look to Charity Navigator, which rates charitable organizations based on several criteria, to make sure all the charities we give to are credible.
