Help Us Make Outdoor & Adventure Education Affordable

The National Center for Outdoor & Adventure Education (NCOAE) is a nonprofit [501(c)3] organization dedicated to planning and facilitating outdoor adventures and educational experience through authentic learning, personal growth, technical skills and stewardship.

Donating to us helps fund a full range of courses, trips and training opportunities for people from all walks of life, but especially for those with the greatest financial need.

How you can help

Your gift helps make outdoor and adventure education affordable for all. Start your giving today by:

Donating online: Make a donation today and you can help us enroll someone in an NCOAE course aimed at providing a fun and educational outdoor adventure that is shown to improve one’s critical thinking, interpersonal relationships, and civic & environmental responsibility.

Please use the form on the right to make a secure donation online.

Donating a gift-in-kind: Like many environmentally conscience organizations, NCOAE is always interested in reducing, reusing, and recycling. It’s part of who we are. And in particular, it’s the ‘reuse’ part where we think we can help each other. Rather than toss away your old outdoor gear, office equipment, electronics, and slightly used whatever-you-haves, consider donating them to a nonprofit organization like The National Center for Outdoor & Adventure Education. Call our national headquarters today to discuss making a gift-in-kind to NCOAE (we’re available Monday through Friday between 8am-5pm ET by calling (910) 399-8090).

Volunteer your expertise or time: While we’re very lucky to have an amazing team of administrative staffers and outdoor educators and guides, we sometimes need additional support. As a nonprofit organization, a volunteer board of directors governs NCOAE. If you’re passionate about what we do and why we do it, then we’d like to hear from you!

Underwrite an NCOAE Course: Working with us to underwrite the cost of an NCOAE course is a great way to give back and receive national media attention for your business or cause. Our team of course designers, outdoor educators and media savvy marketers would be happy to work with you, your business or brand to make one of our adventures available for a special group of deserving and enthusiastic participants. Give us a call today at (910) 399-8090 to start the conversation!
