Spyderco believes deeply in helping our community, and one way we do that is through charitable partnerships and donations. We donate a portion of the sales of many of our knives to charitable causes like medical research and caring for our nation’s wounded veterans. We also regularly support law enforcement and military personnel, scouting organizations, and a broad range of community-oriented events and services. Over the years, we have supported numerous charitable organizations through sales of specific products; our current partnerships and corresponding products are noted below.
NATIONAL PARKINSON FOUNDATION®
Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative brain disorder in which those afflicted gradually lose the ability to regulate their movements, body and emotions. Although the disease itself is not fatal, the complications associated with it are very serious and are collectively considered the 14th top cause of death in the United States.
The National Parkinson Foundation is dedicated to providing support and care to victims of Parkinson’s and their families and friends so they can enjoy the best possible quality of life. They also provide education and support research of the disease and its treatment options with the goal of creating a future that is free of Parkinson’s.
Spyderco is proud to support this worthy cause by donating a portion of the sales of our Mantra™ and Mantra 2 knives to the National Parkinson Foundation. To learn more about the foundation and how you can help support its efforts, please visit: http://www.parkinson.org/.
ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION, COLORADO CHAPTER
Nearly 5.4 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, a progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills. To help battle this tragic disease, Spyderco proudly donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every Sage Series folder to the Alzheimer’s Association, Colorado Chapter. The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support, and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
The Alzheimer’s Association Colorado Chapter provides counseling, educational programs, support-group services, and a 24-hour help line to serve the individuals and families in Colorado living with Alzheimer’s disease. To date, your purchases of Spyderco’s Sage Series knives have helped us donate more than $100,000 to this extremely worthy cause. For more information about their programs and other ways you can support them, please visit http://www.alz.org/co/.
