Your gift directly contributes towards the creation of the Outdoor Adventures (OA) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Fund, the endowment providing equitable access to OA trainings, programs, and experiences.
Over the past 45+ years, OA, a nationally recognized program, has developed aspiring and devoted leaders by connecting people to nature through our outdoor programs, guide schools, and leadership training. Unfortunately, not everyone has equal access - and divisions between those with and without often fall along borderlines between racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds. To improve diversity and access, OA is creating an endowment that will provide funding in perpetuity to offer students from underrepresented communities scholarships and fee waivers for our programs.
For the endowment to begin and for OA to succeed in providing equitable access to our programs, we must raise at least $50,000 by June 2026. If we don’t reach this goal, your donation will still support OA’s DEI, but will not provide support in perpetuity.
Please join in by making a gift today to Outdoor Adventures Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Fund!
