This Summer Give the Gift of Gear!

A single pair of warm gloves can make all the difference.

This summer help us collect the gear we need to support our Portland Schools Program and other in-need scholarship programs! From having enough warm gloves, helmets and harnesses for each participant, your gifts ensure that all our student needs are met so they can focus on bigger things.

Upcoming Fall program gear needs include:

Warm Gloves – $15

Climbing Helmets – $40

New Climbing Ropes – $150

Other course-need items that are directly impacted through donations: climbing carabiners ($25), hiking boots ($250), full-body harnesses ($150), Petzl Rescue System ($299), food for a one-week course ($1000), a full scholarship to a 21-day wilderness course ($3,000), a six-person paddle boat ($5,000) and an automatic transmission 7-passenger van (Ford Transit Connect).

This past year our programs brought positive impact to the lives of nearly 2,000 students — and there’s plenty of room to grow! Consider making a gift today and help us create even more positive change within our communities!

Your compassion makes a difference.

Our Scholarship Programs bring experiential education into our underserved communities.
Northwest Outward Bound welcomes opportunities to work with local organizations, schools and communities to bring our historical principles of experiential learning to those that have historically been excluded from outdoor education and leadership initiatives.

Our current collaborations include:

These programs would not be possible without the generosity and support from donors like you. Thank you for helping us serve more and more students every year.

Thinking BIGGER?

We fully support collaborations with corporations and organizations looking to make a larger impact within our communities!
