Donation FAQs

Why Should I Give to BOEC?2019-08-20T10:31:43-07:00

Without you, BOEC could not provide important therapeutic activities to people with disabilities, serious illness, and at-risk youth.

For over forty years, BOEC has offered outdoor experiences for people who are many times excluded from empowering activities and provides a sense of freedom to those who are routinely excluded because of their disability or special need. Through custom designed curricula, adapted equipment and facilities, specially trained staff, interns, volunteers and financial assistance, BOEC ensures that the power of nature and outdoor activities are accessible to people of all abilities.

I am Interested in Making a Donation to BOEC. What are the Possibilities?2019-08-20T10:53:38-07:00

BOEC has many ways to contribute. Donations can be made to the Friends of the BOEC Fund, which provides scholarships and operating funds. Contributions can also be unrestricted, or designated for capital and equipment needs, or towards the BOEC Permanent Endowment. A gift can also be made in memory or in honor of someone special. In this case an acknowledgment will be sent to the donor and a special card will be sent to the honoree or their family in recognition of the gift. All donations will be acknowledged on BOEC’s website and in that year’s annual appeal.
