Grants of up to $50,000 and in-kind support to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations for projects that promote health equity. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended for a range of activities that increase accessibility to wellness programs.

Grant recipients help advance equity in wellbeing in various ways, including and not limited to:

  • Providing inclusive, culturally intelligent programs and services to their communities
  • Advocating for systemic change
  • Removing barriers to accessing wellbeing practices, such as creating financial accessibility
  • Building community and connection

Lululemon is also expanding the scope of the Here to Be grant program to provide resources to organizations focused on improving wellbeing outcomes for their communities through practices of movement, mindfulness, and/or connection.
