Orvis Answer Center
Welcome to the Orvis Answer Center for Conservation Questions! You'll find the answers to our most frequently asked questions concerning Orvis' conservation efforts.
What is 'The Orvis Commitment' to conservation?
Orvis commits 5% of pre-tax profits to protecting nature. Orvis grants typically focus on specific, on-the-ground habitat projects. Projects dedicated to the acquisition, restoration, enhancement, or long-term protection of native fish and wildlife habitat receive priority. Our conservation work is targeted toward habitats that function as an integral part of the landscape and are faced with imminent threat of loss.
We also give strong consideration to organizations and projects dedicated to advancing canine health and well-being.
What are Orvis' current conservation causes?
Our current commitments to conservation, as well as information on our grants, partners, and campaigns, can be found on our conservation page.

Some efforts we have supported in the past may either be complete or may no longer be recognized by The Orvis Company. For more information on our past projects and their statuses, visit our Recent Conservation Projects page.
How does 'Round Up to Donate' work?
It seems hard to imagine a scenario where a customer would voluntarily pay more for their purchase, but on The Orvis Company’s website, it happens all the time. Through a program called Round Up to Donate, this 150-year-old company is helping its customers give to worthy environmental causes by rounding up the amount of their purchase.
How It Works
When a customer is completing their purchase on orvis.com, a simple checkbox provides the customer with the option to “Round Up to Donate to Charity.”
When the box is selected, the customer can then choose to round their purchase up to the next dollar, five-dollar, or even up to the next one-hundred-dollar increment.
Look for the "Round Up" section of the Orvis.com shopping cart
Does Orvis share my address for contributions?
The only people who receive information are the organizations to which the customer is donating. In order for the donation to be tax deductible, the checks are written directly to the receiving organization, and a receipt of the donation is written from that organization.
