Inspire. Educate. Equip.
You can inspire, educate, and equip people in getting outdoors when you support Venture Outdoors with an end of Summer donation.
Double Your Impact on Sept 4
Make a donation on September 4, 2021 and our board will match up to $10,000 of funds raised. That means your $25 donation will turn into $50. Your $100 will become $200! $500 Becomes $1,000!! You get the idea.
Getting outdoors has never been so important. We're not just alleviating cabin fever, we're addressing stress reduction, connectivity, and wellness. Will you help get people outdoors?
As an outdoor enthusiast you know better than anyone how getting outdoors can improve your life. Studies have shown how interacting with nature lowers the risk of anxiety and depression in adults. Youth who interact with nature are at a lower risk of ADHD, and psychiatric illnesses through their lives.
With your support we can connect people to the benefits of nature.
