Question: How will you use our $10,000 donation? Please be specific, for example: 

 

Answer:  A $10,000 donation to Outdoors for All will support our ability to provide access to adaptive recreation opportunities to more people with disabilities. For example, $10,000 could sponsor 100 adaptive week-long cycle rentals or a seven-week adaptive ski lesson series for ten individuals. Since the pandemic, the cost to deliver programs has increased by 25%. A gift of $10,000 would help us underwrite program expenses to keep them financially accessible to our participants.
