Why I Give

Today, in honor of Giving Tuesday--a global movement dedicated to giving back"�we spoke with Perk Perkins, CEO of The Orvis Company, about why he and his company give back to help Save the Bay and the rivers and streams that feed it. Here's what he had to say: 


PerksBioAs an individual concerned with the welfare of our environment, part of what I find so impressive about CBF is their accountability. Their annual State of the Bay report spells out their progress and pitfalls with a scorecard model that serves as an example for other non-profits.

As a corporation helping to fund CBF's restoration efforts, we find them to be extraordinarily engaged and responsive. They work closely with the Orvis team to amplify their message, and leverage our funding in innovative and substantial ways. 

Orvis takes great pride partnering with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in their outstanding efforts to improve the tenuous health of the Bay. 

Saving the Bay is a tall order, but with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, we feel confident we can make a difference.

--Perk Perkins
CEO, The Orvis Company, Inc.

Show your love of the Bay and its rivers and streams just like Orvis by giving back on this Giving Tuesday.
