The Gammenthalers have witnessed firsthand the direct impact of BOEC’s programs within the adaptive community while skiing at Breckenridge over the years.
“We were so impressed with the variety of people that probably never thought they would be coming down a ski slope, enjoying their time and adventures. It’s nice to see an entire family being able to enjoy the mountain together.”
Seeing families skiing with the assistance of BOEC ski instructors, interns, and volunteers resonated with them, especially since their grandson has a physical disability that affects his mobility. Donna visited the BOEC Adaptive Ski Program Office early in his diagnosis and left with hope that one day, their grandson will also be able to enjoy skiing with his family in Breckenridge, allowing their spring break tradition to continue.
What Your Support Means to BOEC
Our adaptive programs have a profound impact on participants and their families who travel from all over the US and beyond to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and our Wilderness Program at BOEC. We take great pride in the transformative experiences that we offer, and we are grateful for the support of donors like the Gammenthallers and many others. Their monthly contributions enable us to continue to provide life-changing programs to those who need them.
“While giving at any time is great, we think consistency in giving helps to give BOEC the ability to plan and strategize programs for their clients.” Brian and Donna Gammenthaler
BOEC Development Director, Hallie Jaeger, agrees, “The Gammenthalers are correct! BOEC appreciates giving in any way at any time, but we can rely on our monthly donors making the budgeting process more accurate, ultimately allowing us to spend more time delivering the best possible programming to our participants.”
We are pleased to see our monthly donors increasing each year, as fundraising research indicates that monthly donors stay engaged longer and give more over time, and BOEC’s monthly donors are in line with that trend. Becoming a monthly donor can help with personal budgeting as well, for example, by spreading an annual $120 donation into 12 equal payments of just $10 per month.
We encourage everyone to consider setting up monthly giving on our website at BOEC.org/give. It is secure and easy to do by simply clicking on the monthly tab as shown in the image below:
